The next step was using a process called aquatinting for these plates, in this process you melt rosin onto the plates, and bite the plates in acid at different stages to achieve light and dark values.
After I did this I inked each of the plates, with it's own color so that when I printed them together they lay on top of each other to get different colors.

I would then place the inked yellow plate down, and roll it through the press, then the Magenta plate. To achieve this image:
