The old way of reproduction and copying at home

(The basis is the method proposed by M.I. Alisov in 1869)

1. GENERAL PRINCIPLE OF ACTION:

The tray from metal is filled with special mass . An original written with special ink (a piece of paper with text or a picture) is superimposed on the frozen surface. Rolled with a roller and removed. Part of the ink remains on the surface of the mass. It is superimposed on a clean sheet, rolled and removed. Up to 70 copies can be removed from one matrix.

2. RECIPE MASS:

Soak for a day in one liter of water. 200 g tile wood glue from bone. After a day, remove the remaining water. Top up 600 g pure glycerol. Heat the mixture in a water bath until its weight reaches 1 kg . When the excess moisture evaporates, pour into the tray, let it harden. Mass ready.

3. RECIPE INK:

red: 8 ml of water 1 g glycerol, 1 g fuchsin.

blue: 8 ml of water 1 g glycerol, 1 g aniline glaze.

4. TECHNOLOGY OF COPY PRODUCTION:

a) on a sheet of writing paper, apply a text pen with a special ink pen;

b) apply a sheet with the inscribed side onto the mass and roll it with a roller;

c) remove the sheet, a clear impression will remain on the surface;

d) impose a clean sheet on the mass with a print and roll with a roller, remove, copy is ready;

e) after removing the maximum number of copies from a given mass, clean the ink from the surface of the mass with the mixture: 100 ml of water, 5 ml of glycerin, 2 ml of alcohol. Mass ready for a new print.
