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
