What is a Mezzotint?
Mezzotint is a method of Intaglio printmaking where the entire surface of the plate is rocked with a fine-toothed tool repeatedly and from all directions. One the plate is properly rocked, the artist then scrapes and burnishes in the highlights. Working in reverse from black to white. When finished mezzotints print with a wonderfully rich and velvety black. More at Wikipedia.
