Art Gym’s printmaking studio is set up with two different style lithographic presses. A large motorized press for plates and a hand press for traditional stones. Printmakers must demonstrate prior training in stone lithography to work with stones.
Materials provided by Art Gym: basic lithographic chemistry (nitric and phosphoric acid), solvents (lithotine), asphaltum, gum arabic, carborundum, rollers, Shop Mix black ink, cleaners and rags. Members are encouraged to utilize our Digital Lab’s large format Epson printer with our 24” in-house film to generate your own positives for photo lithography.
Members are responsible for providing all their own ink and paper, as well as ball-grained aluminum or photo plates.
