Tarlatan is used in the etching process to gently wipe away ink on your plate. It is made of starched open weave cotton ideal for maximum ink retention.

Tarlatan can also be used to make a rosin bag for aquatinting. The coarse tarlatan is perfect for letting large pieces of rosin through its holes.
