Etchings are created by coating a metal plate with an acid-resistant ground and then drawing an image, in reverse, into the ground with a needle to expose the metal. The plate is then immersed in an acid bath; the acid biting into the exposed lines. When this etching process is finished the plate is cleaned of acid and ground. The etched lines are then filled with ink which are transferred onto paper when the plate is passed through an etching press.
