Relief Printing

Wood block by Pablo Picasso

A printing process in which the impression is created by the uncarved areas of the PRINTING ELEMENT, which has been inked with a ROLLER, BRAYER, or other tool. The incised, areas do not usually print, but printing pressure often creates an embossed effect.

In all relief techniques it is the surface of the block that is inked and printed.

Intaglio

Etching and drypoint

A printing process in which the image is incised or etched into a plate using a variety of techniques and tools. Ink is applied to the recessed areas of the printing plate and the paper is then squeezed by the press into the inked recesses, and usually leaves a PLATE MARK.
