This is something a little different, taking collage to another step.
A collagraph is a printing technique where you make a collage and then use ink to print it. There’s more steps than that to it but you get the general idea. Here’s two examples of the collages and the resulting prints. The edges of the pieces collaged on hold ink when you wipe it clean, then transfer to the paper when you run it through a press. The print is always reversed from the collage.
Here are the collages, the one on the left is called Garden District and the one on the right is Art House Film and that is actual 35mm film strips I used. This gives you a sense of scale, these aren’t very big.
And the finished prints:
In my art ventures, I’ve been painting rocks. Here’s a collage of some of the rocks I have painted.
I think I’ve posted this one before but it’s too perfect for the challenge not to post again.
