Safety Sheet Brasso

This is a detail of tarlatan. It is a grid structure of cotton threads. The big difference with cheesecloth is the glue (starch) that is used for tarlatan. The tissue is therefore much stiffer and harder. The ideal material to wipe intaglio plates. The absorbent capacity of the tarlatan is just right to wipe the ink from the surface, but the starch prevents the ink being pulled out of the grooves. Sometimes it is useful to remove some of the glue by letting the tarlatan soak in warm water for a while.

Detail of Cheesecloth. Also made of cotton, but practically without glue, so the structure is looser than tarlatan. The lack of adhesive material makes it much lighter and smoother. It can be used for wiping intaglio plates, even though tarlatan is better for that purpose. In addition to the use in the cheese making, among other things this material is used in the lithography, for the application of gum arabic on the stone.

Etching; Used for making aquatints. Has a higher melting point than resin powder. The grain is finer than asphalt lumps and finer than resin powder. If it is mixed with "white spirit" it becomes "bitumen". If used without special provisions, it is dangerous to health.

Lithography; Used for detailed drawings, rub the stone lightly with asphalt powder, even before applying talcum powder. Be careful, asphalt powder is oily.
