Paper lithography is a technique using a toner or laser-printed image as the printing plate. By applying a mixture of water and Gum Arabic to the copied page, pigment can be rolled onto it, then used as a plate to print the image onto a painted or printed background. Participants are welcome to work from fresh crayon drawings or bring images to copy in class, such as drawings, illustrations, and high-contrast photographs. The start of the workshop will provide instruction in making encaustic paintings and monotypes to serve as the background for the final prints. Participants will receive instruction in using pigment sticks in place of traditional inks which can yield as many as 105 colors, as well as learn the best techniques for successfully layering pigments onto a waxed surface. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will have acquired the skills and knowledge necessary to continue working in this process independently, without a press or other specialized equipment.
