CTP Oil Printing Technique: The process of offset prepress on hydrophilic-hydrophobic aluminum CTP plates. Reminiscent of early 20th century bromoil and Coening's gumoil print of the 90s, but with modern aluminum offset photographic matrices as the final medium. The matrix is derived from a digital monochrome positive, made with professional HEIDELBERG type offset machines, with high line size and hybrid raster (stochastic). Oil paint is applied by hand, brush or roller. CTP Oil's image style can range from soft pictorial to dense, contrasting, grainy, graphic with colors of any color.
