Drypoint prints are made by scratching into metal or plastic with a sharp pointed needle. This produces a burr that will hold the ink and produce the soft velvety lines characteristic of the drypoint. The prints may be inked in several colours or hand-coloured when dry. Drypoint is a lovely technique for those who enjoy drawing.
