General Studio uses
Lascaux Remover can be used to remove dried acrylic resists, collagraphic media, Tusches, Acrylic paints, painting aids and from screens, metal intaglio plates, smooth substrates, work surfaces, paint brushes and tools (see relevant data sheets). The Remover can be applied by brush to work surfaces and left for 15 minutes before rubbing the surface with a non absorbent cloth such as plastic kitchen or bathroom pad. A dry rag can then be used to wipe away the loosened acrylic and any excess Remover. Soak paint brushes in the Remover for 15 minutes and then rinse them in warm water. The process may be repeated as necessary.
Acrylic resist etching:
Removal of Lascaux Acrylic resists
Lascaux Remover can be used to remove dried Lascaux Acrylic resists and some types of photopolymer films from all types of metal intaglio plate. The coated plate is submerged in a tray or tank containing the solution. Thin layers of recently applied resist will weaken and wrinkle within fifteen minutes but older and thicker layers may require to be soaked for 30 minutes or longer. The plate is removed from the tray and the weakened resist is immediately rubbed from the plate surface with a brush or non-scratch knitted-type plastic cleaning pad (if the remover is allowed to dry the resist may harden again). The plate is then rinsed in warm water and examined for any remaining resist. The process may be repeated until the plate is clean. If the plate is to be etched further, the Remover’s residue must be washed away by degreasing the plate thoroughly before applying other resists. Water can be added when the solution dries up in the tray through evaporation. Brushes with deposits of dry resist can be soaked in Lascaux Remover for 15 minutes, rinsed with water, washed in Marseilles soap and then thoroughly rinsed.
Broad open marks can be created by painting Lascaux Remover onto the dry layer of coloured resist. After 25 minutes the plate will be dry and the plate can be rinsed by holding under flowing warm water. The coloured coating and the weakened areas of Lascaux Hard resist will wash away. The metal will now be exposed in the areas where the mark was painted. The plate should be rinsed with CPS degreaser and then water before applying a Lascaux Aquatint spray resist, Stop-out resist or other resists.
