• Whiting Powder - Melbourne Etching Supplies

Whiting Powder

Whiting (Calcium Carbonate) can be used in powder form to polish plates by hand when printing, or can be made into a paste with ammonia to degrease your plate. An equally successful but far more environmentally friendly and safer option is to use Soy Sauce in replacement of cloudy ammonia.

We sell Whiting in 500g bag, if you require more please order in quantities accordingly.
