ART139125 ART139125 *ARTOOLS SOLVENT SOLUBLE LIFT GROUND 125ml. The solvent-absorptive action of this lift ground may be used to remove selected areas of hard ground, expose the bare metal and allow for aquatinting (or other working) of those areas without removing the ground from the entire plate. It works equally well on a plate which has been grounded with traditional ball or liquid ground and is especially suited for use with Artools satin black varnish ground. 5 Login For Price
