Solar plate etching is a method by which Photopolymer Printing Plates are used for wither intaglio or relief printing. UV light or sunlight is used to expose the image and tap water to etch the plate, thus eliminating the need to use acids etc in the classroom or studio. Used as relief, these photopolymer plates offer high quality and adaptable alternative to lino or other relief products. Solar plate etching has emerged over the last few years in Australia as a very real alternative to traditional type etching, due primarily to its non toxic qualities. The potential is unlimited in the styles and techniques obtained as well as improving the health and safety aspect of printing.
