Printing from Tetra pack® packaging is the art of recycling.
Perfect to learn about engraving.
The material is easily cut with a cutter knife or a pair of scissors.
Dry-point engraving is done on the side covered with “aluminium” paper, then certain parts are removed to reveal the cardboard and then reveal deep “blacks” later on.
The plate is inked with intaglio inks using a small tarlatan pad.
It is necessary to insist on the bare parts and the grooves.
The printing is done on intaglio press with a special sheet of paper for engraving or wet watercolour paper.
If there is no intaglio press, a pasta machine can be used.
