Description

This technical demonstration will present a simple and direct approach to combining stone and plate lithography to recreate tinted lithographs common to the first half of the 19th century. My approach is an adaptation of methods described in Michael Twyman’s book The Techniques of Drawing on Stone in England and France and Their Application to Works of Typography (Oxford University Press, 1970). The tinted lithograph uses the same principles as the chiaroscuro woodcut, but is capable of achieving a significantly broad range of tones. It is also a very good method to introduce the principles of color lithography to beginning students. Working from a stone that I will prepare in advance, I will show pulling a mylar, methods of drawing a tint run, plate-making, and the first of two runs of printing, and will include a finished example from the demo stone.
