Less absorbent than tarlatan or cheese cloth, reducing the possibility of over wiping the image area on the plate. Yet, it is absorbent enough to wipe the surface area clean. As a result, prints have good contrast, fine detail, rich saturated colors and smooth solids without streaking.

Perfect material for wiping ink into the grooves and removing excess ink from the surface of all types of intaglio plates
