Letters From the Sun: Relief and Intaglio Printing with Solar Plate

A07 ALL LEVELS Monday – Saturday

DVD53. Printmaking in the Sun DVD by Dan Welden. This DVD video shows every step of making relief and intaglio prints using Solarplates. It begins by showing how to create an image on Mylar using various mark-making techniques. Next you see how the Solarplates are developed and then printed. Tips and advice on exposure times, washing out, registration, inking, preparing paper and the amount of pressure needed from the press ensure that your printmaking experience is easy and successful. Includes a gallery of Solarplates prints with explanations of the techniques used to create them. $29.95

 

A07 SUPPLY LIST:

A complete supply list will be provided to students, but mostly it will include the "regular kit" that calligraphers bring to most workshops: items such as ink (I08, I70), pens (H62, H38, N02,N04), pencils, paper towels, tape, exactos (S417), scissors (S835), aprons, water containers (S784, S276), etc. Students will also receive instructions on preparing transparencies ahead of time.

There will be a base fee of $10 to cover the supplies I bring to share, such as ink, tarlatans, rollers, nitrile gloves, etc. After that I will set up a "store" and students will record what they use and we will settle up at the end of the week. This amount will vary according to how many plates each person uses. Each plate is, at the time of this catalog, $6.50 for a 5x7" plate, but the plates can be cut up into smaller sizes for economy. I will also have workable acetate available for purchase, and transparencies for printing. I will have printmaking papers available for purchase as well, or students can bring their own. I pass on my discounted prices for all these materials to the students.

I08. Higgins Eternal Ink
I08. Higgins Eternal Ink.

A non-waterproof, carbon black ink for dip pens. Our most popular ink for classes. Recommended for copperplate (add a few drops of gum arabic). Perhaps the best ink for calligraphy for a beginner; it will cause the beginner the fewest problems. This ink will bleed more readily than other inks. If bleeding is a problem, try Sumi Inks. 2.5 oz.

Quantity discounts start at 6 & 12.

"For broad-pen writing, I add gouache to Higgins Eternal. Gouache gives Eternal some needed body. It doesn't necessarily have to be black gouache. Indigo or a dark red add an interesting hue to the result. In a quarter ounce of Eternal, I add about a 3/8-inch bead of gouache from a tube. Eternal doesn't give me the hairlines I want in pointed pen work, so for that I much prefer iron gall or walnut ink". - Bob Hurford

I70. Moon Palace Sumi Ink
Moon Palace Sumi
The Ink is now in a bottle with a Gold Label

While the packaging is a bit different, this is the highly sought after and highly recommended Japanese Sumi Ink. For both broad edge and pointed pen work. Dries waterproof. A great calligraphy ink.

"I like Moon Palace better, but both Moon Palace and Best Bottle are beautiful inks. The Moon Palace has a slight sheen to it, which I like. Michael suggested this ink to me so please tell him I said, "thank you". I just finished a job of 200 invitations with Moon Palace and the ink is beautiful. I did not dilute the ink.
A client just brought me invitations (slick paper) to address. This bride knew going into this that I probably couldn't do pointed pen. However, for fun, I tried the Sumi inks and to my surprise they worked pretty darn good. I usually have to use a sharpie on slick envelopes, yikes!!!"

--Clair F., Jan 2011.

2.0 oz (widemouthed jar)
6.0 oz (180ml)
