Charbonnel Lithographic Tusche Stick is lithographic ink in tablet form. It is used to create an image on your lithographic plate.
Once mixed, this tusche stick will produce rich, dark lines when applied to your lithography stone or plate. The tusche ink can be layered and it is suitable for various lithographic printing techniques, including watertusche and turpentine tusche.
To prepare the ink, dissolve the tablet in either distilled water, turpentine or petroleum solvents. When mixed with turpentine, you will achieve a more viscous solution. This will penetrate deeper into your lithographic stone than a white spirit or solvent-based mix.
