electro-tint definition

  • noun:
    • A style of engraving in relief by means of voltaic electricity. An image is drawn on a metallic plate with some material which resists the liquids of a battery; so that, in electro-typing, the parts not covered by the varnish, etc., obtain a deposition of metal, and produce the required backup in intaglio. A cast with this is then the dish for publishing.
    • identical to electrotinting.
