Printmakers will be introduced to Non-toxic Century Plate lithography - a new, sustainable and environmentally friendly process using re-grainable Century Plates and biologically-based, biodegradable processing materials. Artists who like printing with polyester lithographic plates (Pronto Plates) will really enjoy the richer tonality, reciprocity of mark-making, durability, ease of use and predictable results that Century Plates provide. Those who prefer lithographic limestones will like the similar surface texture we can create by hand-graining Century Plates. Unlike litho stones, these plates can be re-grained very quickly and easily and so help to create more fluidity and spontaneity in an artist’s’ working process. This new form of lithography is excellent for creating gestural, expressive images and producing multiple-color prints.We will cover how to grain a new plate, registration methods and plate preparation, drawing directly on the plate with a variety of materials, etching, processing, and proofing on the etching/relief press as well as how to clean and store an inked plate or re-grain a plate for a new image.
