Drypoint & Chine Collé Beginners/RefreshersArray


Out of stock



Drypoint is an intaglio printmaking process similar to etching but the image is scratched directly onto a plate by hand using a variety of sharp tools. The resulting line is softer than an etched line and has a slight fuzziness; tone can also be achieved by crosshatching and using specialist tools. Plates can be printed in a single colour or with colour introduced through chine-collé (fine collaged papers) or inking up à la poupée (using a ‘dolly’) both of which will be demonstrated.
