I have been experimenting over the last few weeks with collagraph plates made with tile cement and carborundum. With the plates made I have spent happy hours playing with colour and inking them up using a viscosity technique. The most exciting discovery for me is using gold leaf under the ink. This changes the nature of the ink making colours brighter and adding glitz.
This work is a departure for me, but still uses all my favourite plate making and inking techniques.
