I love printing and I have tried lots of printing methods in the past
- etching, woodcut, linocut, lithography and screenprinting
- but I've never done a collagraph print before.
I had opportunity to use a printing press (very briefly)
so I snatched the chance and made a collagraph plate.
It is basically a collage creating low relief surfaces and textures.
I rather like the plate itself.
It has a couple of coats of varnish on it and a residue of the ink.
Here is an expert though

Take a look at her blog and the beautiful enamel work she produces too.
