What are the differences between relief and intaglio printing?

Intaglio: image is etched into the surface, smeared with ink (which sticks in the recessed areas), and (using damp paper) put through a press.

What is Intaglio painting?

An intaglio plate, more commonly referred to as an etching plate in the United States, is a metal plate (usually zinc or copper) which has been coated with a resistant substance, draw upon with a sharp stylus (breaking through the coating), and then etched in acid to create lines within the plate. Ink is then forced into the grooves within the plate; under pressure the plate will release the ink unto dampened paper, creating an "etching" or "intaglio" print. Side note - roughly translated, "intaglio" is Italian for "within the surface."
