Printmaking Process by Plant Extract that is Harmless to the Environment for Creative Printmaking


This research is aimed to investigate the tropical natural plants as to use in printmaking process in order to create new body of knowledge for basic printmaking system. Printmaking presently, confronting chemicals problems occurred during its creative process which eventually affect artists and environment. Consequently, the concept of exploring the tropical natural plants was developed. The four acid fruits were selected to be experimented by extracting their pH measurements. The natural extracts were tested on wax pencil drawing aluminium foil. The results of applying natural acid from fruits are strongly concentrated that can be used in replacing other general chemicals in basic printmaking process. The outcome of the experimental artworks are clear and sharp as well as be able to reprint as much as required.
