poupée printing
The poupée printing technique, also known as dolly printing, is an intaglio plate coulour printing technique.
This kind of printing consists in applying some ink on the plate and spreading it out with one's finger tip wrapped up in a strip of cloth. This printing technique is characterized by the fact that it allows the printer to put severla colours on the same plate contemporaneously.
