Intaglio & Etching

We've got everything you need to teach etching in the classroom. Choose from our range of etching plates and tools to suit your budget, if money is tight you can create effective intaglio prints with just acrylic etching plates and etching tools. If you're etching into zinc plates, we offer a selection of grounds as well as a hotplate, etching crystals and soaking trays.

Our special etching inks will sit in the etched lines, wiping cleanly from the smooth areas of the plate to give beautifully clear, detailed prints. Rubber kidnerys make it easier to coax the ink into the etched lines and muslin is useful for wiping off excess ink.
