Re: paper and polymer plates



When George was here at Crow's Shadow Institute we also experimented with
other materials - I got really interesting results with some samples off a
big roll of old drafting vellum I've been packing around for years. Not
quite as clean as the Pronto plates, but a nice edgy feel that still
maintained the photographic look. The most striking results we saw were with
drawings done right on plates with sharpies.

For those without access to a press, you can also achieve interesting
results akin to the look of xerox transfers by just inking the plate with a
cheap speedball brayer and printing with another clean brayer.

Best wishes,
Roberta
