BURNING IN CARBORUNDUM OR GOETZ METHOD
Born to a French-American family in 1909 the Goetz painter, to overcome the difficulties of engraving, began looking for a technique that does not use water.
He developed in 1967, after 10 years of effort, carborundum etching.
DEFINITION AND PRINCIPLE
Carborundum (silicon carbide) is a combined emanation of silicon and carbon, which is crystalline in nature and is similar to coal.
It is in the form of more or less fine-grained and has the distinction of strongly harden the materials with which it is mixed.
The recorder deposited on the metal or other support (plexiglass, ...) a paste of plastic resin (or other) and carborundum grains. Once dried, this very hard material has a relief. It is therefore not to incise a plate. The panel is used here only as a support for the added material, which is modeled asperities recessed and raised. This material has the advantage of retaining the ink with a wide variety of shades and structures.
From thereon, the printing process is identical to that of intaglio with the exception:
- The ink can be carried out both on the reliefs in the hollow,
- The shape given to the "matrix" smashes the paper and prints it in the press effect (up to 17 tons of pressure) as well as its negative colors applied by hand,
- The paper in thicker tank (600 gr) and humidified beforehand to soften it, is
The Goetz process used by painters is growing worldwide.
Variations of application and its technical possibilities are almost endless. Each artist reinvents and adapts the Goetz process open to the most diverse expressions.
Miro, Clave, Papart, Coignard, Hélénon, Brisson, including Cottavoz have applied or are still working with it always had innovation process.
Naturally it is possible to combine the carborundum etching with all other printing techniques.
