Collagraphs are original hand created prints, a form of printmaking similar to etching. The big difference is that with this form of printmaking you are able to create prints with depth and texture.
To create this texture effectively a printing press is required.
Collagraphs are made by printing from a plate constructed of either mount card, a thin sheet of metal or very thin plywood.
The texture is built up by glueing a variety of materials on to the base plate in the same manner as you would create a collage, hence the name collagraph. The image is created on the plate which is sealed to protect it and make it more sturdy.
The next step is to ink the plate with the colour, or colours, desired in the finished printed image. I use special printmaking oil based inks that give a very strong and vibrant print.
The plate is then put on the press bed with a piece of dampened watercolour paper laid on top before being passed through the printing press. The ink on the plate is then transferred to the paper creating the print.
Because the image is printed under pressure the image is also embossed into the paper.
Each print is completely unique even if they have been printed from the same plate or even with the same colours. No two are completely alike. You can see this in the adjacent photographs.
