Drypoint is a printmaking process in which a design is drawn on a plate with a sharp, pointed needle-like instrument

Arne Bendik Sjur

The process of incising for drypoint creates a slightly raised ragged rough edge to the lines, known as the burr. When ink that has been applied to the plate is wiped off both the incised line and specifically the burr receive ink when the plate is wiped, giving the printed line a distinctive velvety look. Owing to the delicate nature of the burr, drypoint is usually made in small editions, stopping before the burr is crushed by the pressure of the intaglio press.

Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg says that art is not leisure, but the connection! Arne Bendik Sjur images is a concrete proof of this.
