engraving engraving


For many years engraving was a process mostly done by skilled craftsmen such as goldsmiths or carpenters, depending on the materials used in the press. Prior to the fifteenth century, engravers were not trained painters. Instead, prints of drawings or paintings were copied, then etched onto wood or metal. Plates were made from wood for many years. In time, goldsmiths began to engrave in metal.
