Etching Tools – EC Lyons

R379.00R2 955.00

Since 1898 the Edward C. Lyons Company has established a worldwide reputation for manufacturing high quality professional hand intaglio / printmaking tools. E.C. Lyons tools are hand crafted in the USA and made with the highest quality tool steels, which are hardened and tempered to hold their cutting edge, and are made to be re-sharpened. Working in harmony with the artist’s imagination these tools will bring years of enjoyment and satisfaction.


EC Lyons roulettes are recognized throughout the printmaking world as the finest roulette’s available. This irregular roulette tool is designed to be used in intaglio printmaking processes. The egg-shaped head of the tool revolves around the curved shaft, stippling the surface and producing a pebble effect on the plate. Areas roughened in this way will hold more ink and appear darker in the finished print.


The deburring tool is a quick option for removing the sharp bur from the edge of the etching and intaglio plates and creating a bevel. Simply slide the blade at an angle along the edge to create friction and scrape away the burrs, leaving a smooth and even finish. It features a specially designed swiveling head mounted to a sturdy steel, pencil shaped handle for years of reliable service.
