Printmaking a major branch of Graphic Art is a means of producing multiple images, each of these is called a print. It involves the creation of a master plate from which multiple images are made. The artist chooses a surface to be the plate-like linoleum, wood, cardboard, metal, stone or any one of a number of materials. Then the artist prepares the printing plate by cutting, etching or drawing an image onto the plate. Ink is applied (in a variety of ways) and paper is pressed onto the plate either by hand or by way of a hand-run printing press. The finished print is pulled from the plate.
Often the first three or four prints of are different than the rest of the edition. These first prints are called artist’s proofs. The number of prints pulled from one plate is called an edition.
There are different types of printmaking: woodcut, linocut, etching, engraving, aquatint, mezzotint, lithography, serigraphy, & monotype.
Here you can find some of the mentioned above techniques.
