Instructor will provide students with a recommended suppliers list and suggested supplies (sharpies, cellulose sponges, litho crayons etc.) upon registration. George Roberts, developed Pronto Plates in 2001 as a new, low cost and nontoxic form of lithography. Far less complicated in process, these plastic plates can be run through a laser printer or drawn with permanent ink or toner and heated to create the “etch”. They are printed using a hand brayer, lithographic ink and wet sponge either by hand, baren or with an intaglio press. Julie will demonstrate its versatility and provide many tips and techniques for students to explore.
