RE: intaglio

I find ours print better once the plate is "seasoned." We use etching ink
that we cleanup with baby oil. I suggest that my students wipe a light
film of baby oil over the plate (and then wipe it off before inking) before
printing the first time.

You are soaking the paper right?

Hope this helps.
