Photopolymer

A short course in "Photopolymer printing" in the Graphic House, Mariefred



Early morning in Mariefred



The creative gang!



Some bagpipe music by Gunnar



Print out your photo or illustration from the computer on OH-paper in grey scale and best quality!



Take a Polymer sheet and put your OH-paper on top. Then illuminate for 12 min (the time is changing depending on what kind of lightsourse you are using, but it has to be UV-light)






Illuminate another 12 min with a grained sheet (screen paper?...around 80)


Put in water (20-25C) for 1 minute!






Wipe the polymer with a soft sponge for another minute



Rince it off!



Wipe it of and then either put it in a drying cabinet or use your blow dryer until it is really dry


Cut out your picture



Polish the edges



Illuminate again for another 12 minutes



Now its time to prepare the colour


You have to work the paint until it gets really smooth and nice



If its too thick add some vaseline and some rapeseed oil









Now its time for the printing!!

I tried to print some of my illustrations and some photos. I will tomorrow show the whole process of the printing technique!
Now, a new illustration...with still some inspiration from the underwater sculpture park in grenada!
