What is "Tarlatan" - Definition & Explanation

Tarlatan is a starched, open-weave fabric, much like cheese cloth. It is used to wipe the ink off a plate during the intaglio inking process. The open weave allows for the tarlatan to pick up a large quantity of ink. The stiffness imparted by the starch helps prevent the fabric from taking the ink out of the incised lines.
A sheer cotton fabric in open plain weave usually heavily sized for stiffness.
Starched cotton gauze used by printmakers for wiping intaglio plates.
