To produce lithographs, Musselman bought an old manual press and a set of stones. He drew the image on the stone with a grease pencil and through some fancy chemistry, the stone accepted ink only where the original design had been. The stone was then placed on the press bed, paper placed directly on the stone and a protective metal plate was placed over the paper. A press bar was lowered onto the metal plate and the bed was drawn through the press with the large crank handles seen in the photo to the left. Darwin Musselman's serigraphs and lithographs are an economical way to own a genuine Musselman work of art.
