Origin of Transfer Printing

››››››››ƒCƒ[ƒW
  • Transfer printing originated out of lithographic printing using stone plates, the technique invented in 1796 by German author and actor Alois Senefelder. In this process, a limestone plate was prepared by directly drawing letters, images and patterns on a smooth stone surface using oil, fat or wax. The stone was treated with a mixture of acid and gum arabic, etching the areas that were not protected by the grease-based images. When the stone was moistened, these etched areas retained water and an oil-based ink could then be applied. Being repelled by the water, the ink would adhere only to the original drawing and could then be transferred to a blank paper sheet. This traditional technique is still used today in some fine art printmaking applications.
