Silk Aquatint (also referred to as Silk Mezzotint) is an inexpensive technique related to collagraph that can be used to create very painterly intaglio prints which can be a low tech, safe alternative to etching. The process involves working from dark to light. If the mesh on the board was inked as an intaglio plate it would print as a velvety black all over. By applying paints and varnish to the mesh different tonal effects can be achieved.
