A la poupée is an intaglio printmaking technique for applying different ink colors using a ball-shaped wad of fabric to apply the ink to a copperplate. Paper is printed through just one run in the press. The term a la poupée means "with a doll", which refers to the wad of fabric, shaped like a ball.[1]
