Etching is an intaglio printmaking technique in which lines or areas are incised or engraved into a plate of Copper, Zinc or Iron. It is these worked areas that hold the printing ink. Etching and engraving are the two primary intaglio printmaking methods:

Etching is a process whereby a metal plate is coated in wax and the wax removed (incised) with a sharp tool. The plate is then immersed in an acid bath and the incised areas become corroded. The plate is then inked and printed.

Engraving is the oldest intaglio method where the metal plate is incised directly using a sharp engraving tool.
