Lithography Flat Printmaking

Lithography allows the artist to paint and draw directly on to the surface of a stone or metal plate. The image is created with greasy materials on a grease-sensitive surface to accept ink and the remainder treated with water-based materials to repel ink. A characteristic of the resultant image is often a crayon-like texture or ink line-and-wash drawing. The lithographic printing process is ‘off-set’ and requires a long bed on which the paper and plate are positioned side by side. A full-width roller passes along the entire length of the bed, picks up the ink form the plate then passes back again putting the ink down on the paper.

 

Senefelder lithography ink

The Litho Ink Tusche for lithography with the highest pigment load to meet the artists expectations for high prints quality. Excellent for all forms of lithography and monotype on stone. The Litho Ink Tusche Senefelder contains resins that make it harder and more resistant with a great, solid black.

Senefelder process and preservative ink

Roll Up Black for rubbing – process and preservative paint for lithography – not-drying. Use at the second, main etching or to secure the stone for later use.

Senefelder asphalt

Bitumen for negative drawing 110 ml – serves to draw or block out areas. Similar to tincture or ossa sepia, contains wax. It’s better to let it dry possibly overnight as liquid materials before proceeding with the negative areas of drawing.

Senefelder tincture

The most grassy and elastic kind of tincture for negative drawing 110 ml – serves to draw or block out areas. It’s better to let it dry possibly overnight as liquid materials before proceeding with the negative areas of drawing.

Senefelder ossa sepia

Bitumen for negative drawing 110 ml – serves to draw and block out areas. It’s better to let it dry possibly overnight as liquid materials before proceeding with the negative areas of drawing. Contains rosin and protects very well from the nitric acid.

Litho crayons

Litho crayons in different hardness grade; extra hard, hard, medium, soft and greasy. One of the most important and versatile solid drawing material. They come in the form of square sticks in a different hardness grade that depends on consistency and abrasive properties of the material mixture and the style of drawing. So each hardness may leave a different mark on the stone – from delicate and crumbly particles to dark marks on the plate.
