Creating a lithograph is quite an involved process and I thought you might like to see the fabulous printing press used.  Once you have created your design on the metal plate, you then have to block out sections of the plate before placing it in acid.  The acid literally etches into the plate so the longer you leave it in the acid the darker the colour.  With careful timing you can achieve beautiful shades.  You then have to "ink up" the plate before rolling it through the press to achieve the print.
