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.

The Akua Carborundum Gel for Platemaking is used to create collagraph printmaking plates.

This ready-to-use platemaking gel offers a reliable medium that delivers fine, sharp detail and a uniquely textured surface that yields rich, velvety areas of color.

Printmakers have been experimenting with methods for making carborundum prints for decades. Akua Carborundum Gel improves results by offering a formulation that is consistent and reliable. Carborundum Gel is performance-tested, so printmakers can rely on the consistency of this platemaking medium from start to finish. As a result, prints will be strong and vivid, each and every time.

There are numerous ways for using Akua™ Carborundum Gel for producing carborundum plates.

Three approaches include; Light Field; Dark Field; and Stencil Methods.

  • LIGHT FIELD is an additive method where the image is created by applying the Carborundum Gel directly on the printmaking plate.
  • DARK FIELD is a subtractive method where Carborundum Gel is applied over the entire printmaking plate and the image is created by removing the medium with various tools.
  • STENCIL/SILKSCREEN plates are created by squeegeeing Akua™ Carborundum Gel through a hand/machine cut or any silkscreen stencil.
