This plate of polished zinc is designed to be used as part of intaglio printmaking processes of etching and drypoint. For a full description of the etching process see this graphic, created by Carola Barnaba at the DensityDesign Research Lab.
This plate measures 450 x 300mm, and is 1.6mm thick. The upper surface has been polished and is extremely smooth. Stop Out Varnish is not required. Once the plate has been etched or incised, it will be suitable for use in most rolling presses, but please be aware that some small tabletop presses will not print from plates over 1mm thick.
