Photopolymer Mixed Media Printing Techniques

January 13, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

There are many different ways to use your photopolymer plates (ImagOn, KM, Solarplate, etc). This includes a variety of methods of inking and printing single impressions, adding color and integrating plates of different sizes into larger compositions. You will learn about relief rolling, ‘A la poupe’e, duo-tone, and simple background printing. Using the registration grid (recommended) on your press you will learn how to accurately align or disperse multiple plates in a single composition. Some elements of chine colle’ will be addressed. If you still have your transparencies you will see that they are incredible aids in deciding how to use your photopolymer plates in conjunction with existing backgrounds. This program is filled with numerous tips on inking and registration that will significantly enhance your craftmanship.

Note: If working in your own studio a press is necessary for the techniques presented and is not suitable for hand printing.

This 2 hour interactive demo includes questions from participants followed by optional 30 minute individualized Confer and Critique Add-On sessions that may be purchased in advance below or at checkout. Additional hour long Confer ‘n Critique sessions may be scheduled by appointment.
