Hand-pulled collagraph print.


This was my first attempt at making a collagraph print and so I kept it fairly simple. I stuck pieces of breakfast cereal, sandpaper and other bits and pieces to a card. I then glued some aluminium foil over the whole lot and around the edges. As anticipated, the aluminium foil wrinkled, producing protrusions that would end up printing as fines lines. I inked up the place, covered it with a dampened piece of Hahnemuhle paper, and ran it through my printing press.

This print will be wrapped in tissue paper and shipped in a very sturdy tube to ensure it gets to you safely.
