I found this site last night while I was searching for non toxic printmaking methods. There are books out and other sites that offer information in this area also.

If anyone has sites or books to share please pass the information on to us.

I think that everyone wants to work in as safe a manner as possible.

A friend of mine was teaching printmaking as a graduate student at Washington State University and asked me to help her do some internet research re printmaking sites. I have a million of em but here are a couple:


This first one is a great site with many links.

Thanks for sharing those, mame. I spend a lot of time surfing to find information on non toxic methods in printmaking. You have just saved me about 2 hours that I could better spend on my art:)

My latest issue of Printmaking Today has a box highlighting websites about this:

http://www.newgroundsprintshop.com - NM workshop
http://www.philaprintshop.com - classification of prints and printmaking terms
http://www.woodblock.com - an artist making woodblocks, with live video. Not sure what it has to do with non-toxic :)
http://www.art.cofa.unsw.edu.au/print/ - UNSW site about water-based screenprinting
http://www.kamprint.com - Japanese site with a health and safety page with dangers and alternative materials

Cool, Timelady. I have to watch my $$ for now, but I want to subscribe to that mag also. My fibers mag is nearly $50 a year, but one I really love. How much does this one cost?

It's quite pricey, about 7 or 8 dollars an issue? (I've thrown away my copy, but it's £5 here). But it's only quarterly so that's not so bad. Despite primarily being a painter I still think it's one of the most inspiring magazines I buy! Always interesting articles and loads of images. This year I'm going to try to stop subscribing to magazines now that I've found them at the library - cut down those expenses! :D

Well, I wish the library here was as well stocked with magazines that I enjoy. Our library is very very small, and I can't even check books or mags out since I don't live within the town limits. They charge a pretty hefty fee for out of towners:( I do have a friend that sends me artists magazines when she is done reading them. I get a box about 3 times a year:)
