When we talk about recording,

To record is to create an image by means of incisions produced by different tools or media in a support that allows it, until creating a matrix suitable to carry out a multiple reproduction. Therefore, the engraving will be all that incised or carved material that can be inked and that allows the image created to be transferred to the paper, by means of its printing or printing, a certain number of times.

The image obtained from the transfer of the matrix to the paper, through of the ink and of the press, is the stamp.

According to the definition of engraving lithography, serigraphy and some other current procedures should not be considered engraved, since the matrix is ​​at no time is affected. But the tendency is to include them within the technique of engraving and the images that result from printing are also called prints.

A recently used technique (S XIX), which coincides with the appearance of linoleum as a flooring material, is composed of arpilleria yuste) coated with a thick layer of linoxin (blend of polymerized oil, milled cork and pigments). It is a soft material with a very uniform density, which allows to be carved in all directions so that very fine details can be obtained. In order not to be tight it is recommended to stick it to a board, its regular surface allows to make great runs. If it is highly hardened, it can be heated to obtain the malleability and softness necessary for its size.

The tools used for linoleum carving are the same as in fiber wood:

Linoleum plates Gubias Rubber rollers
