Watercolor

A term that refers to both the resulting artwork and the medium. It is a method of painting where the paints used are made of pigments that are suspended in water soluble "vehicle". Watercolors appear luminous and are transparent because the pigments used are laid down in pure form and few fillers obscure pigment colors. By adding Chinese white, watercolor can be made to look opaque.

Polaroid

Instant print produced using a Polaroid camera whose degree of plane polarization is very high for light that passes through it. Such a camera produces a finished print as soon as there is an exposure because of its high internal processing speed. Polaroid prints can also be used to mean instant photographs and films.

Metalcut

Metalcut was a technique for relief printing. It existed primarily from about 1450 to 1540 in Europe. The technique used thin metal plates. One method cut or hammered away parts which should not print. A second used engraving to show white lines on black background.
