Clear heavyweight acetate ideal for dry point etching, monoprinting or can be used as a palette for printing ink or acrylic paint. Easy to roll ink out using a Hard Rubber Roller. Also suitable for construction, creating stencils or masks, and creating your own painting tools. Cut with a knife, rather than scissors, for best results. Use a Steel Ruler or Acrylic Cutting Ruler to cut straight lines easily. A4 is easy to handle and 0.5mm thick.

Properties of Acetate

  • 0.2 – 0.5mm thick

  • Great for construction works as you can cut and adhere with tape or Supertac glue
  • Use scraps as paint spatulas, can be drawn on with alcohol-based permanent markers or used to make Shaker cards

Printmaking Techniques

Drypoint Etching Plate: Squeeze the mixture over your surface, do not go to the absolute edge and leave gaps for other colours. This is a fluid process and as you add more paint it will move to the edge of the surface. Despite being level, some paint will always flow off the edge.

Monoprinting: Squeeze the mixture over your surface, do not go to the absolute edge and leave gaps for other colours. This is a fluid process and as you add more paint it will move to the edge of the surface. Despite being level, some paint will always flow off the edge.
