Finally a zinc plate to make monotypes on! It holds a lot more ink than plexi and gives you a greatghost image!
Polished Etching Plates
from Lake Forest,CA
This plates do not have protective coating on the back so it created more work for me. In description was not mentioned about not protected on the other side. I will never buy this plates again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great price and packed well.

Plates are competitively priced. Shipped quickly and where packed very well.
A solid product
The Zinc plates I purchased were on clearance. One side is polished and protected by a plastic, but you will still want to prep the plate. The plates are nice weight and are solid/not flimsy. I am using for dry-point etch and these will be perfect for what I need.

I use these for drypoint etching. Great value and quality. Love the 4x5 size.

Used for intaglio and they're already cut to size and coated at a reasonable price and shipped in a timely manner.

Really Good for Drypoint
from Burlington VT
Zinc plates are great for drypoint and Mezzotint because they are softer than copper. The down-side is that not as many prints can be pulled before the plate distorts and softens a bit, but I'm often ready to move onto another piece of work by the time that happens.
Just as described
from End well NY
