Intaglio is a family of printmaking techniques in which the image is incised into a surface,
known as the matrix or plate, and the incised line or area holds the ink.
Normally, copper or zinc plates are used as a surface, and the incisions are created by etching, engraving, drypoint, aquatint or mezzotint.
Collographs may also be printed as intaglio plates.
