Acids, etchants & trays

"L'eau forte" is the traditional name for drawing on a hard ground that covers the entire plate surface. The uncovered areas are bitten in an acid bath; the duration of immersion determines the lines' depth. The technique offers great freedom in drawing, since it is unnecessary to break the metal surface. It is recognizable in the lines on the print by the absence of burrs.
