    • n galvanography A process for producing plates which will give impressions after the manner of a plate used in copperplate engraving. The drawing is made on a silvered plate in viscid paints, in such a way as to leave the dark parts slightly raised. An electrotype is taken from this, which may be used as an engraved plate, the dark lines now being depressed precisely as in a copperplate. An impression from such a plate is called a galvanograph.
