Points to work on varnished plate (etching point) or without ground (drypoints).

Etching points are available in two types :
- extra fine tip which slides without any resistance on the grounds
- flexible micro needle. The flexibility gives a bounce which is very suitable for working on textures with small repetitive gestures

Drypoints come into 4 types :
- Diamond drypoints can be considered as the reference point. The diamond can be used for both gray than black. They incise steel, copper or zinc without difficulty. The work is remarkable flexibility. The only drawback is the relative weakness of the junction between diamond and steel from the rest of the tip. They need to be hold fairly vertically.
- The ceramic drypoint : Even softer than the diamond but less incisive, it is unique to make very sweet burrs. It often becomes the favorite tip engravers, but leads to be accompanied by a more incisive tip for deep blacks.
- Tungsten carbide drypoint come in two different sharpening. The "incisive" version engrave copper deeper than diamond, and is very suitable for a specific work of black, with beautiful regular burrs. The softer version slides without resistance on the plate and allows to get sensitive gray. The standard carbide can be an alternative to the diamond tip if you do not want to risk breaking.
