Solar Plate Etching/Photopolymer Etching

This is a safe non-toxic method of etching without the use of acids or mordants.
The printing plates are coated with a photosensitive polymer coating and exposed using the UV light rays from the sun or a UV light box and developed in water. The plates reproduce fine detail picking up the smallest of marks made. It is a very good way of reproducing your original drawings.
