My original collagraph print Helix is a unique print for the home.
One of the dictionary definitions of Helix is 'An object having a three-dimensional shape like that of a wire wound uniformly in a single layer around a cylinder or cone, as in a corkscrew or spiral staircase.'
Hence the name of this blue and green handmade print...
Printed image size: width: 14.5 cm x Height: 20 cm
Paper size: width: 20 cm x Height: 25 cm
The frame and the mount are not included.
I tried my hand at making collagraphs last year and produced lots of work in a making frenzy!
Getting messy with the paint, it was great!
What's a Collagraph?
A collagraph is an assemblage of various materials (textured papers, plaster, plastics, fabric) and these are glued onto a printing plate, which is usually cardboard.
The plate is then sealed using shellac / varnish and left to dry. Once the plate is dry it is ready to be inked up using oil or water based ink.
Dampened paper is prepared and place on top of the inked plate. It then goes through a printing press. The paper is then carefully lifted off the plate to reveal the collagraph printed image.
