Contemporary lithography may involve a metal or paper matrix (in place of stone slab.)

  • Intaglio: Etching In intaglio printing, lines are incised in a metal plate. Ink is forced into the lines; then the surface of the plate is wiped clean, leaving ink only in the below- surface lines. Paper is laid across the plate and when it is run through a press the below-surface ink is forced on to the paper.
