Traditional printmaking techniques expose the artist and the environment to a multitude of toxic materials. The safer printmaking promoted with a Non Toxic Printmaking approach allows for all the traditional techniques to be replicated with less harmful, but equally effective, environmentally friendly methods. No acids or solvents are used in the process.
