Portrait of Adan is an aquatint Intaglio etching.

Brief description: With an aquatint, a dusting of powdered resin is put onto the metal plate. The plate is heated from below (hot plate) to melt the resin which creates an acid proof surface on which to create a design or image. An acid bath, will "bite" into portions of the plate that are not covered by acid proof surface. Once the image is established, you ink the plate, press to a dampened piece of paper for printing, use printing press roller to complete the process.

Please research "Intaglio Etching" on the internet for a more complete description.
