  • etching - Intaglio process in which the design is worked into an acid-resistant substance coating the metal printing plate; the plate is then exposed to acid, which etches the plate where the metal is exposed, to create lines and dark areas. For the single step of exposing the plate to acid, use "biting."
  • etchings - Prints made from an etched printing plate, which is a metal plate on which a design is made by coating the plate with an acid-resistant substance, creating a design in the coating, and then exposing the plate to acid, which etches the plate where the metal is exposed. For designs incised directly into a copper plate using a burin or graver, use "engravings (prints)."
  • fathers - Men who have children, either biologically or by adoption.
  • violins - The soprano members of the violin family, having a hollow, resonating body with an incurved waist, arched top and back, and two F-shaped holes cut in the top, a neck terminating in a pegbox and scroll, a bridge, and four strings.
