Etching and engraving are both forms of intaglio printing, which is defined by the cutting of lines into a flat surface. Although the method of producing these lines is different, the printing process is identical. The plate is inked and wiped clean, leaving ink only in the etched or engraved lines. The plate is then pressed against a sheet of paper to transfer the inked image. The deeper the line, the more ink it holds and the darker it prints. Etchings and engravings both print in reverse, so the artist must draw the image in reverse when working with these media.
