Engraving is one of the oldest and most historically-important printmaking techniques. Engraving is the method of cutting into metal with a sharp tool with a diamond-shaped tip called a burin or a graver. The pressure of the tool creates lines in the metal. The engraved plate is inked so that the lines are filled. The surface is then wiped clean and printed under pressure onto dampened paper.
