Etching & Intaglio Tools
We stock intaglio tools from the world’s leading manufacturers. Etching needles for drawing through grounds and the hardest diamond and carbide tip tools are highly recommended for drypoint. For other forms of direct mark making we have roulette wheels, burin engravers, and mezzotint rockers.
