  • More Details

This is a "stone-to-stone" transfer paper. It copies the image from a stone and transfers it to another stone. However, this paper can also be used very well to draw the original image and to transfer it directly to a stone.
This paper can not be rolled up, because then the hard surface could be damaged. So, when sent as a parcel, the sheets of paper have to be protected between plywood.

User's instructions:

  1. The drawing is made with lithographic crayons or with tusche diluted by solvents (no water-based material because it will disolve the gum layer on the paper.) The image can be made "non-reverse" because the image will be copied to the stone in reverse.
  2. Place a finely grained stone (or plate) on the press bed and adjust the pressure for normal printing
  3. Dampen equally the entire surface of the stone.
  4. Place the transfer paper on the stone, a backing sheet, the tympan and run it through the press. Add 1/4 turn pressure and run it through the press again.
  5. Wet the back of the transfer paper, add 1/4 turn pressure and run it through the press twice.
  6. Re-wet the back of the paper and run it through the press two times (or more if there is any doubt)
  7. Generously wet the back of the transfer paper, wait a couple of minutes and gently peel off the backing of the transfer paper.
  8. Let the drawing sit overnight.
  9. Talc and etch the stone.

Description of "Stone to Stone Transfer Paper"

This paper is designed primarily to receive inked impressions from one stone for transfer to a second stone. Because of its rather hard smooth surface, it can also be used for drawings and writings in crayon and tusche. Properties:

  • The coating should be thin, hard, and very smooth, so as to accept printed impressions with clarity.
  • The hardness of the coating is produced by the quantity of gelatine in the coating solution. Too much gelatine will produce excessively hard coatings, which are incapable of accepting clear impressions. If the coating is too soft , its composition will separate from the paper and adhere to the viscous transfer ink on the printing surface.
  • The coating is prepared as follows:

- flour 18 parts
- finely ground dental plaster 12 parts
- gelatine 1 part
- starch 1 part

Tonal Printmaking without Photography

True-Grain is a unique high quality textured polyester drafting film which holds tone. It is a technologicalbreakthrough in the creation of hand-drawn prints since its unique textured surface and very high level of transparency allows the reproduction of very subtle washes and marks without the intermediate stage ofphotography or laser scanning. By drawing directly on True-Grain a wide range of drawing materials may be faithfully reproduced through photo-screen print lithography and etching. Most drafting films are non-textured and semi-opaque and only capable of reproducing flat solid marks drawn with opaque photographic drawing materials. It is the unique textured surface of True-Grain that holds the tone. As the wash gradually dries deep pits in the film catch the tiny particles of pigment suspended within the wash producing the halftones for transfer to photo-sensitive screens and plates. Similarly the surface grain exerts an influence on marks drawn with pencil charcoals and crayon. The broad tonal range now possible with True-Grain delivers a fully resolved drawing using far fewer colours than was required previously.

The High Level of Transparency.

For the successful transfer of subtle tonal information to the stencil material the drawing support must be as transparent as possible to create both a strong stencil and the minimum amount of resistance to ultra violet light on short exposures. Since TrueGrain has a very high level of transparency the minimum point of stencil hardening is reached with substantially shorter exposure times. These shorter exposure times also ensure the resolution of the maximum information from the artwork.
