Indian Summer Mazama, 14 Color Siligraphy
26 x18

“Indian Summer Mazama” is a Siligraphy print (waterless lithography print) on an aluminum plate, 14 colors using 5 plates

Plate Making:
Draw with any water-based medium such as watercolor pencils, tempera, tusche, etc.· No etching needed. Common silicone caulking is thinned with mineral spirits (6 to 4 ratio) and a thin film applied over the drawn image, and is quickly heat cured (250 degrees for 10 minutes). Wash out the image with water.
Other mediums can be easily used like Sharpie pens, copier toners and spray paints, in which case you wash the image out using simple solvents. Images drawn with traditional lithographic materials can easily be converted to waterless .

Print:
Modify inks as necessary. Since there is no need for the use of water or gum apply inks as you wish. Proof.
