Aquatint is a printing technique similar to etching. In etching the metal plate is waxed and the image is drawn through the wax using lines and dots. Then the exposed metal is corroded away usage acid. The plate is inked and when pressed onto a paper by Etching press a limited edition of printed images can be made. With aquatint the image is made by using fine resin powder resist to make a textured ground
