Drypoint etching is an intaglio technique used in preparing high performance plastic plates for printmaking by means of which lines are scratched directly into the plate. Thicker lines are made by applying more pressure to the burin (graver) or etching needle (also a roulette, chalk roll and matting wheel). Etching is traditionally the process of using strong acid or mordant to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal or other type of surface to create a design in intaglio (incised) in the plate.
