2800Re: [PPLetterpress] Press substitution
- Aug 7, 2004Check out Dan Welden and Pauline Muir's book Printmaking in the Sun
It is a good resource for alternative polymer platemaking ideas and
uses (BoxCar has the material for great prices). For doing large size
short run broadsides you can image your copy then surface ink the
raised type with rubber base litho inks. These inks are water
rejecting, then you can do a couple swipes with water base block
printing inks, the type will reject with the intaglio or low relief
taking them. So you get a series of mono prints with uniform type info.
Very playful!! (Print and Play both start the same) A shallow plate
works best, I like the KM-73. (its also very tough)
