Lascaux Lift Solution 500ml

$43.53

Calcium carbonate in water Lascaux Lift Solution is used in conjunction with Lascaux. Aquatint resist (see Lascaux Aquatint resist technical sheet – available fall 2004) or Lascaux Tusche wash/spray. Lift techniques are liberating to work with as the painted marks take on a particular characteristic when they are processed. The method is similar to ‘sugar-lift’ in traditional etching, and the marks made with Lascaux Lift Solution resemble classic sugar-lift marks. When the Lascaux Lift Solution is used to make an autographic positive, the painted marks will be non-printing and the sprayed Tusche background will print.

and becomes chalky-looking and fragile. Unwanted areas should be lifted cleanly away. be allowed to dry briefly before the application of the next and in this way a continuous impermeable layer can be formed.
Autographic Positive Method
Once the airbrushed Lascaux Tusche wash/spray is completely dry on the PVC sheet the Lascaux Lift Solution can be gently rubbed away with soft dry tissues or a soft cloth. The tusche will remain in place and the powdery deposit can be disposed of. Some powder may adhere to the sprayed tusche increasing its opacity. These areas of tusche will ultimately print.
