This fabric is ideal for wiping excess ink from the surface of all types of intaglio, etching, drypoint, collagraph and photopolymer plates. It is made from polyester, making it sturdy, long-lasting and lint free. It is also less absorbent, smoother and softer than traditional tarlatan, allowing plates to print with highly saturated color and smooth solids without streaking. Akua inks will not dry and harden on this fabric, making it reusable and its paper-like quality eliminates the need for a final paper or hand wipe on the plate. This fabric is 19" x 10 yds. in dimension.
