Collagraph Trees

 Now that my intaglio class is finished, I am taking a collagraph class.  I've only had one class session, and it seemed promising.  Right now I'm at the let's-just-experiment-so-we-can-see-what-kinds-of-things-we-can-do stage.

But I went in to print the two plates I'd made the night of the class, and all I can say is that I HATE inking cardboard plates.  I LOVE inking copper plates, but this is dreadful.

There are some interesting effects, but it all just seems too fragile to me.


  1. You are on a roll here learning new things. I had to look up both intalio and collagrph because I've never heard of them. These are so interesting and it seems trees are the perfect subject for this process.

  2. The top one reminds of veins..in a good way!

  3. I'll give you ten stars out of ten stars for these :) I'm going to google all those things too :)
