tarlatan

Tarlatan is a woven cotton fabric used in printmaking for wiping off excess ink from the etching plate. But I like to use it for my collitho’s like I’ve done here. I love how the ink is picked up by the individual threads and that way emphasizes the loosely woven pattern of the tarlatan. I also like the effect of the variation in darkness of the inked tarlatan.
