PRINTMAKING

Printmaking is a traditional technique of making an impression onto paper.  Whether you are etching, relief, screen printing or mono-printing we have the supplies to get you started and keep you going.

Etching

Charbonnel etching inks both oil based and aquawash, burnishers and economy etching needles, tarlatan by the meter, soft and hard ground.

We stock acid free boxboard and shellac flakes which can be used to make the collagraph plates.

 

Relief

For woodblock and lino printing we have Caligo safewash inks and Derivan Block Printing Inks.  Plates are traditional grey lino, double sided soft vinyl plates, and Japanese maple and magnolia wood blocks.  Carving tools include Japanese wooden handle sets and deluxe Edward Lyons sets. We have Bamboo and plastic barrens.

 

Silkscreen

We stock Nehoc kits and accessories.  Eziscreen is low cost and chemical free option of screen printing. Kits include all you need to print T-shirts including ready to expose screens, wash out tubs, squeegees, inks, screen frame and even a T-shirt! We also sell separately StencilPro screens and transparency films. 

Nehoc silkscreen inks are designed to print on cotton, polyester, paper, silk and wood.  Available in a variety of colours, including fluro, we stock the inks in 250ml with larger sizes available on order. These inks can be set using a household iron with temperatures of 150deg.

adArt stocks a small range of aluminium screens and can arrange large sizes to order. We have squeegees to fit the screens.
