Perpetuum Mobile LXXXIX - 70 x 100 cm. Mezzotint print on Hahnemuhle Copperplate 230g/m2 paper. Limited edition of 1/30, signed and numbered by artist Tomasz Winiarski.

Mezzotint is a printmaking process of the intaglio family, technically a drypoint method. It was the first tonal method to be used, enabling half-tones to be produced without using line- or dot-based techniques like hatching, cross-hatching or stipple. Mezzotint achieves tonality by roughening the plate with thousands of little dots made by a metal tool with small teeth, called a "rocker." In printing, the tiny pits in the plate hold the ink when the face of the plate is wiped clean. A high level of quality and richness in the print can be achieved. See the video on how it is done.
