Drypoint is a printmaking technique that involves incising a design into a metal plate with a sharp tool. The design is then inked and printed onto paper or other materials. Drypoint produces an image with soft, velvety lines that are unique to this method, and is often used in combination with other techniques such as etching and aquatint to create more complex images, and are be used to create prints of any size, from small editions of postcards to large-scale artworks, and is also an affordable option for artists who may not have access to more expensive printing methods such as lithography or screen printing. Drypoint has been used by artists since the 15th century and continues to be popular today due to its versatility and expressive qualities.
