Aquatinta

What is Aquatint?

Aquatint is another interesting technique from the various ones within the Intaglio printmaking process. However in Aquatint there will not be any lines being bitten through an acid bath, but a whole area undergoes this process. Thus, the area to be etched gets lightly dusted with powdered resin. Afterwards, it is exposed to heat so as to make it melt, and thus, adhere to the surface. Subsequently, the plate is placed in an acid bath in order to etch away the very few and small areas which have not been covered with the granulated resin. In Aquatint a copper or a zinc plate is used as they are the most capable of holding ink. The plate gets dipped in acid so as to achieve a fine and even corrosion. The artist will etch the outlines of the drawing, then, immerse the plate into the acid bath progressively and cautiously. The plate is passed through a printing press along with a paper, and as a result the ink will then be transferred onto the paper. Aquatint is often used in conjunction with engraving and etching. Contemporary printmakers often opt for spraypaint rather than powder, especially when they want to use the sugar-lift technique, which is a variation of aquatint.
