About etching

It is a classical technique of intaglio graphics. Engraving is done by using an etching needle on a copper or zinc plate covered with a waxy ground. Afterwards zinc plate is bitten with a nitric acid, copper plate – with ferro-dichloride solution one or several times. By incising the varnish is exposed, therefore the scratched places are bitten by applying acid and compose a linear drawing on the print while unexposed areas of varnish turn into light tone background. The intensity of a drawing depends on biting period, the longer printing form is dipped into acid the more intense drawing is obtained. When the varnish from the plate surface is cleaned bitten places are applied with ink by rubbing it a print is obtained by running the plate through the etching press on the moisted sheet of paper. Etching technique is often combined with aquatint, softground etching, drypoint techniques. The technique was invented at the beginning of 16th century in Switzerland.
