Photo Plate Lithography – Using Photo images

Description
Lithography is a planographic process based upon the fact that grease and water do not mix: in Photo Plate Lithography, the images are drawn and painted onto drafting film or printed digitally on to acetate; the plate surface is exposed to UV light and developed to create hydrophilic areas. As a result of this printing ink is then attracted to the image and the parts of the surface with no image attract water. Create, expose and develop an A5 photo lithography plate, learn how to ink up and how to print your plate using an etching press. One session for working with autographic drawing and one for using a photographic image.
