The Process Of Fine Art Printmaking
The printmaking technique that Jane uses in creating the Natsu and Tribal series combines polymer plate etching with Chine Colle’ (F. papers added). Termed “Solarplate”, this printmaking technique is a safe, non-toxic approach to printmaking developed in the 70’s. The Solarplate process combines a light sensitive polymer printing plate with steel backing and it is processed using UV light and water with papers added during the printing process.
A Solarplate is used in the transfer process
Jane hand draws a transfer of the Natsu or the Tribal image on a special opaque glass surface using black ink wash and graphite pencil.
