Paper sheets, inks, engraving, lithography and serigraphy. This is what Giuseppe Prezioso, marketing director of Cartiere di Fabriano, spoke about at the talk on paper processing procedures that took place on Tuesday 21st January in the art graphics classroom of the RUFA Pastificio Cerere headquarters.
A double appointment in which Guido D’Angelo also presented Colart’s Charbonnel inks. A perfect and lasting union between a sheet of paper and a trace. In addition to the talk, a monotype workshop on Rosaspina and Tiepolo Fabriano paper took place, with the help of Charbonnel inks.
Rosaspina is a machine made cardboard in round and is suitable for all techniques of art printing (engraving, lithography, silkscreen printing), while Tiepolo is made with 100% cotton, is also machine made in round and the edges are all intact.
The inks that lend themselves well to the use of such special papers have a high pigment content and, even after dilution with a transparent varnish, retain an excellent covering capacity. Charbonnel and Fabriano are two reference points in graphics and art printing.
The talk, as well as the workshop, have been taken care of by the lecturer Mariapina Bentivenga.
