A painting dabber is recommended for application. It is applied hot. Plate Cleaning:?Before applying these grounds it is imperative that all grease be removed from the plate. To do this thin some Marly white?(whiting)?with a small quantity of water and rub the plate with a soft cloth or a piece of cotton. Rinse under flowing water. Pour a soured solution of vinegar and salt on the plate. Rinse once again. Dry rapidly. Avoid putting fingers on the plate whilst carrying out these operations. Soft Grounds:?Soft grounds protect the plate. They are non-drying grounds applied with a painting dabber or roller. Textures and materials pressed into their non-drying surface will lift off leaving the metal bared ready for the bite of the acid. The plate must be heated before application. The “Pencil Method” consists of drawing with a hard point on “laid” paper applied over the soft ground. The paper sticks to the drawn parts. After the bite of the acid a pencil stroke effect is obtained.?
