Universal Etching Ground

by Graphic Chemical

Grounds, whether liquid or ball, are essential to the etching process. A ground that breaks down in the acid bath, or chips when two lines cross is useless to the etcher. Since 1920, Graphic Chemical & Ink has been manufacturing the finest grounds available anywhere. Universal Etching Ground is easily applied to the clean plate, and due to its relative transparency, it leaves the image in view at all times.
