This is a simple form of the traditional lithography process which is based on the premise that oil and water do not mix. Part of the attraction is that most materials including aluminium foil and cola can be sourced cheaply and you can practise at home. There is plenty of room for trial and error but this is part of the fun. Note – White Spirit is used for cleaning up – sparingly!
