Big paper delivery from Römerturm yesterday: wonderful, heavy printmaking paper from a family business called 'ZERKALL-BUETTEN'. This South German company has been making the finest mould made paper since 1903, and their factory is using a water mill that can be traced to the 16th Century. Along wit...

Silk aquatint: first impressions | Boiling Point Press

Update from the Boiling Point Press research team

Some first impressions of the silk aquatint research at Boiling Point Press. Creating depth and a rich variety of texture and color is what makes silk aquatint a wonderful technique to work with. This little print has dark red, ocher and black ink applied directly on the plate and is printed in one…

Testing silk aquatint plates | Boiling Point Press

New technique coming to the studio.

New plates and materials are ordered and on their way to the studio as we speak for adding a new technique to our repertoire. I learned 'Silk aquatint' originally from Julio Valdez(who might have invented it too, I'm not quite sure), while being his assistent at Proyecto 'ace in Buenos Aires, Argent...

New plates for the studio, they are big and wonderful!

I'm thrilled to post these new, big plates I obtained at a friendly neighborhood print shop. Around 55 x 75 cm, high quality aluminium plates, ideal for waterless lithography. This is wonderful stuff, and it cost me one pound of coffee for the printers.

The new www.boilingpointpress.org is online!

I have posted detailed instructions on the topic of waterless lithography and mounting Chinese paintings. This is part of an ongoing project of collecting and documenting artists' techniques by yours truly, and other artists, that will be offered through the website. There is still tons of content, subjects and information waiting to be added and published, but it's a start.

An introduction to Waterless lithographySubmitted by bruno on Mon, 25/02/2013 - 00:55I had my my very first experiences with printing techniques in the old lithography department of the Antwerp Art Academy. Printing from stone and the whole -rather cumbersome- process captivated me, and never really...

First toner test print, trying out the dubious mix I obtained for free at a local ink refilling station. This is waterless lithography, drawing made on a used offset plate. The orange is just a cut out stencil.
This must be the cheapest, quickest and most versatile printing method ever.

I picked some antique, wooden boxes out of the trash some weeks ago (nearly fell in that container while doing so) and now they are hugging my cans of ink as if they've been doing that for at least fifty years.

Woke up with an idea to use xerox toner to produce a reversal print. The only issue that needed clearing up was how well gum Arabic is able to protect a surface from an acetone bath. Turns out gum Arabic is one tough cookie, and this test is a success. Now for applying it for some serious artwork, instead of this random thirty second drawing.

I finally got myself to pass by that print shop for some xerox toner. It was at least a year ago when I asked the owner to collect excess toner from his cartridge refilling business, and I never went back. Then I was embarrassed and waited even longer, and then I though "let's go and pick up that toner". He gave me a big bucket and I will never have to beg for toner ever again.

Toner is a nasty and toxic powder, and it's an age old tradition that these kinds of products are any printmaker's best friend. Hope to post some examples and results soon.
