Mezzotint

Mezzotint is the process of reverse engraving copper or steel plates so that relief illustrations will show light and shadow. The master plate surface is prepared so it will print solid black. Gray and white areas are prepared differently to show light and shadow.

Plate

A plate is a broad, concave, but mainly flat vessel on which food can be served. A plate can also be used for ceremonial or decorative purposes. Most plates are circular, but they may be any shape, or made of any water-resistant material. Generally plates are raised round the edges, either by a curving up, or a wider lip or raised portion. Vessels with no lip, especially if they have a more rounded profile, are likely to be considered as bowls or dishes, as are very large vessels with a plate shape.
