Bitesize Technical - Sealing Printing Plates with Shellac

A bitesize today covering one of the technical processes in monoprint and collagraph printmaking. Typically plates are made from mountboard or matboard and its important to apply something to seal the plates and make them more hardwearing. Without this the surface of the plate will quickly go soggy and deteriorate when printing and cleaning it. Drop me a message if
you have questions or more ideas for technical videos you would like to see.
