Love this


This is a small black and white collagraph print.

Collagraphs are a bit like collages, mixed media, stuck firmly to a sturdy surface which is then inked up and selectively wiped to produce highlights. The plate is then printed onto thick damp paper using a lot of pressure.The result is a unique textured print which often shows indentations from the plate media into the paper. It is a laborious and messy process in my experience but the results can be surprisingly good.

This is a very small print, the plate size is 8cm x 4cm and has a border of about 1.5cm-2cm. It is temporarily attached to the mount using water soluble gummed paper. (easily removed with a gentle steam) Including the mount it is sized to fit in a frame 13 x16.5cm but you could easily resize the mount or double mount it to fit a different frame.

I have used oil-based ink and the paper is Somerset 100% rag paper.
The print is signed and dated in pencil.

It will be posted in a sturdy cardboard envelope. (Please note that wherever possible, I recycle or reuse packaging, so although it may not be pretty, it will protect your print. If you want this sent as a gift, please leave me a message and I'll send my prettiest envelope!)


I find this technique particularly difficult and unpredictable, so I did a small series of simple prints to practice wiping exactly the right amount of ink off the plate to produce a pleasing result. This is my favourite from the series. I think it looks like a load of tea towels hanging out on a washing line.
