2.) Intaglio:

Intaglio is the precise opposite of relief printmaking. In this process the artist carves the image onto the matric and then rubs ink into these carved lines, making sure that the untouched areas are cleaned of ink. In the intaglio process the paper is previously soaked in water. When it is laid over the matrix and the squashed through the printing press, the soft paper is pushed into the grooves of the inked lines, thus transferring the image onto the paper. Many intaglio processes involve creating the grooves with acids that eat into a metal plate. Variations of the Intaglio techniques include Engraving, Etching, Aquatint, and Messotint.
