In the 1920s, Edward Julius Detmold combined etching and aquatint with colour à la poupée, a complex printing process in which aquatint is added to the initial etched design in order to create areas of tone. Coloured inks and oil paints are then applied individually to the various areas of the plate and rubbed into the bitten lines. Each plate is inked afresh; therefore proof is unique.
