Sillis Experiments » Four Colour Polymer
Proof of cyan polymer plate.
We were interested to learn about a workshop by Karen Randell being offered at The Center for Book Arts, NYC on four-colour polymer plate printing.
Proof of magenta polymer plate.
Polymer plate technologies offers an intersection of digital and analogue technologies as applied to letterpress printing.
Proof of yellow polymer plate.
David and I attended this workshop since we have a challenge proofing press and see great potential for this process in the creation of book works.
Proof of black polymer plate.
While the technology is radically different from photogravure, the registration and printing precision are relevant to our learning process.
