Printmaking Revolution
Etching, lithography, and screenprinting shouldn’t be harmful to the artist or the planet. With cutting edge, never-before-published advances in printmaking media, Printmaking Revolution provides artists, students, and teachers alike with safer, environmentally friendly and non-carcinogenic methods for creating beautiful prints. Teacher and professional artist, Dwight Pogue offers groundbreaking information on embracing green, petroleum-free, nontoxic materials that comply with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements. With new alternatives for the modern era and work by some of today’s most notable artists, including Janet Fish, James Rosenquist Walton Ford, and Louisa Chase, this book truly revolutionizes the techniques, materials, and processes of a time-honored medium.

Century Plate Lithography
Developed in the summer of 2011 by the team of Dwight Pogue and Skip Klepacki (D&S), Century Plates provide a more affordable and environmentally sustainable alternative for lithographers.  The plates are made of heavy gauge commercially pure aluminum that can be re-grained and re-used hundreds of times.  Simply grain the plate using an inexpensive sanding pad and common household cleaning agents.  Using plastic or steel pin registration and a single Century Plate, printmakers can easily register and print multiple color lithographs combining crayon, tusche, toner washes, Sharpie paint pens and other materials. Century plates can also be easily coated with D&S self leveling photo-coating and used to print halftones, digital images and drawings on Mylar.  When this capability is combined with D&S bio-based processing materials, the need to use hazardous acids, asphaltum, Red Lacquer V, and Lithotine is eliminated.

Salt Water Electrolysis Etching
Using this low cost, DIY system of rechargeable 1.5 volt batteries and kosher salt water, copper, aluminum, zinc, and steel plates can be safely etched using electrolytes.

Velvetint Intaglio
Velvetint produces rich, aquatint and even mezzotint-like results, while eliminating the risk of breathing finely powdered rosin particles and the hazardous fumes generated from melting rosin and applying asphaltum and rosin based stop-outs.  Simply degrease copper or zinc plates with hot water-- no need for toxic cleaning or polishing products.  Then brush coat plates with D&S Posi-Coat, a self-leveling high resolution photo coating made with a safe, vegetable based solvent.  Expose a fine stochastic dot screen onto the plate and develop it in an aqueous based developer.  The plate is ready to etch and a variety of materials may be used for stopping-out, including the reccomended D&S BioLac, a 100% bio-based and petroleum free alternative to traditional toxic materials. 

The new Precision Roller Bar retrofit system for direct litho presses enables printing of intaglio, lithography, and woodcut without changeover.  More information coming soon!
