What is Etching?

Etching is an interesting form of art, whereby the artist makes a print using a design made in a metal plate. Generally copper or zinc is used. The plate is coated with etching ground, generally made from beeswax, resin and bitumen. Then the design is drawn onto it by means of a sharp tool, exposed to nitric acid that eats away the areas, so as to leave a pattern from the recessed lines. In this way the lines will hold the ink, enabling the design to be transferred to the paper and realize the art print. Great pressure is applied with a printing press so as to transfer the ink onto the paper. There are different types of etching, and sometimes such techniques are combined together as well. Etching dates back hundreds of years as printmakers used it as a rather easy way to engrave. In fact in the fourteenth century it was widely used to decorate metals, and printmaking was then introduced later in the sixteenth century. Since then etching continued to remain quite popular because the final result is very beautiful and distinctive. Different etching techniques were used over the years, such as soft-ground etching, spit bite, open bite, and photo-etching.
