2484Re: Question on photopolymer printing.
- Feb 20, 2004I think you are just trying to lay down a very even, non-blotchy film
of ink on a plastic substrate to use as a filter for photography. You
may be able to do this with letterpress, but there is always
variation in image density (particularly when printing on a plastic
substrate) at the edges of the impression. This is one of the prime
indicators that a ink film has been printed by letterpress or other
Have you tried mixing dyes with clear varnish and coating them on the
plastic or glass surface? You may be ablke to do it with gelatin and
food coloring for short-term uses.
