Introduction to Collagraphs

Collagraph is a technique that relies upon the surface quality of different materials glued onto a printing plate to produce an image. Marks can also be cut and scored into the plate, which can be printed simultaneously as an intaglio and relief image. Design, construct and create prints from your Collagraph plates using found objects, carborundum and a variety of textured materials. Learn inking techniques and use an etching press to print expressive and detailed prints.
