Mezzotint Copper

Anyone who has hand-rocked a copper plate using a mezzotint rocker will know how much hard work is needed, and that mezzotint plates rocked using traditional tools produce the richest blacks and tonal ranges. Maywood's Mezzotint Copper Plates are made using best quality traditional mezzotint rockers made by Lyon's. Each plate is individually crafted using a specially adapted pole-rocking system which maintains constant pressure and angle of the rocker blade, and also controls the rocking motion and spacing to give a perfect surface.

Available in 5 sizes.

Please note that due to the nature of the material some tarnish may be apparent on the copper this can easily be cleaned with a copper polish or salt and vinegar solution.
