What are carborundum prints?

A carborudum print is made using a metal grit that is glued to a printing plate. The plate is then inked and printed on an etching press. Carborundum prints produce rich tonal passages and are very tactile in surface textures.

Chine-Colle is a process where lighter papers are collages onto heavy papers using an etching press to apply pressure.
