What is drypoint?

What is drypoint?

Printmaking technique belonging to Intaglio family, where an image is skillfully incised to a plate using a hard pointed object or "needle" of a sharp diamond or metal point. Copper was traditionally the plate but nowadays, zinc, plexiglas or acetate are commonly used. Like in etching, drypoint is a little bit easier for a drawing artist to master compared to engraving as the needle technique is closer to the use of a pencil than the burin in engraving.
