      1. Water Temp -- Dan Mayer demonstrated his methods of plate
      development over the weekend at the College Book Arts Assoc. 1st
      Biennial Conference in Iowa City, IA. He indicated that he washed out
      his plates by hand using a stainless photographic developing tray in a
      sink with warm water running, in order to keep the temp somewhat
      consistent. (Same process used in photo print development by hand.)

      As to the motion of the brushes, or plate above the brushes, I assume
      the orbital motion eliminates the chance for individual brush tufts to
      continually interact with the same plate areas, causing the potential
      for brush action to be more aggressive in a circular pattern. When
      washing by hand, you would be wise to imitate the action of the machine
      and not use totally circular or horizontal & vertical strokes on a
      consistent basis.

        Hi, John

        Sorry I missed Dan's demo on Saturday.
        I wonder if he has any online material for reference?
        I was interested in his use of stochastic patterns in Photoshop.

        Cheers

          Hi,

          I just got involved with the PPLetterpress mailing list/running forum. I come from an intaglio and silkscreen art background. I am a little slow at text messaging, blogging etc.

          The emails that I'm getting seem to be the answer to a question. How do you follow the trail backwards to get the whole story. Welcome to the 21 century.

          easiest way is to actually go to yahoo s site. Find the groups link, then find the only for PPLetterpress. All the messages are there and you can do a search.
