Collagraph Day

Spent a wonderful day preparing some plates and printing another. The image was pulled from an aluminium plate with drypoint and shellac burned onto the plate. It was inked a la poupee and printed onto 300gsm paper as a bleed. Hope you enjoy seeing it.

Re: Collagraph Day

Lovely image - there is almost an encaustic quality, is this from the shellac? I'd love to hear more about how you go about that. It really extends the options for drypoint without the need for an additional plate. Fi

Re: Collagraph Day

Hi,

This plate is made from a recycled litho plate from a Printers. The Shellac is painted onto the plate and then lighted so that the shellac burns and evaporates to form the texture. I used a drypoint tool to score into the plate. It is inked up with oil based etching inks, tarlatan wipe, then tissue finish. Printed under tight pressure onto Dutch Etch 300gsm pre dampened paper. Glad you like it. Jen.

Thanks for the process detail - I will store that one to try out some time. There are so many different ways to make marks and I love this one. I look forward to seeing some more of these. Fi
