Printmaking processes: Lithography

14 septembre 2012

Source, L'un des derniers ateliers de lithographie de France ouvert à tous !

Lithography works on the principle that grease and water repel each other. There is no carving involved. The artist draws on a stone with a greasy crayon and then covers the stone with a thin film of water. the oily ink will stick to the greasy image but not to the water-covered areas.
