General Information: Lithography - In its simplest form the surface of a stone is smoothed, washed and dried. A drawing in a greasy chalk or ink is then made directly onto the stone. The stone is wetted and then ink is applied. The ink is attracted to the greasy image but is repelled by the wet stone. The image can be transferred to a sheet of damp paper. More sophisticated images can be applied to the prepared stone by means of transfer paper.
Size:- printed area each print 5.50 x 8.50 inches approx.
