Drypoint is a printmaking technique in which the image is incised into a plate (or “matrix”) with a hard-pointed “needle” of sharp metal or diamond point. The method is similar to engraving, but the raised ridge along the furrow is not scraped or filed away as in engraving. It is this raised edge or burr that gives the drypont its characteristic appearance. Traditionally the plate was copper, but now acetate and zinc are also commonly used.
