Precision Digital Negatives Aquatint Screens for Photopolymer Gravure and Copper Plate Photogravure. I spent a year doing research and development of these screens and derived a method that enhances deep rich blacks, produces a very long tonal scale, produces very smooth tonal transitions or large areas of similar tone, and yields very fine detail. These stochastic, or random dot screens, are printed on film and are immaculate, with no artifacts or streaking. They are the best screens I have ever used and a number of master print makers are saying they have never had a better aquatint screen for either Photopolymer Gravure or Copper Plate Photogravure. I recommend starting with the Medium screen.

Screens may be used for any type of images, not just photographic images, where you wish an aquatint for intaglio printing.

Resolution

  • Fine Resolution—This screen has the finest stochastic random dot pattern and produces a lower contrast plate/print.
  • Medium Resolution— This screen has a medium stochastic random dot pattern and produces an average contrast plate/print. This is a good all around choice and my favorite.
  • Coarse Resolution— This screen has the most coarse stochastic random dot pattern and produces the highest contrast plate/print.
