Quelli del NON_TOXIC

An all-Italian blog that was created to answer the many questions that come from many quarters on questions related to the retrieval and use in Italy of new materials called "non-toxic" for the Graphics of Art. It is a space under construction conducted by the writer and is dedicated above all to the Graphic Arts students, in particular to those of Palermo who with their collaboration constitute the greatest motivation and support.




A book that describes the techniques and accompanies them with concrete examples, from the use of saline alternatives to nitric acid, acrylic paints, water-based inks, photopolymers and the electrolytic system. Sustainable engraving is not a simple "green practice", but an attempt at cultural experience.
