I have challenged my printmaking groups to combine collagraph prints with gum arabic transfers.
They have made a set of small plates, these are 3in x 3in,
using tile cement, carborundum and wood glue,
then simply intaglio printed using one or two colours, I have also used dress pattern tissue as chine collee.
When the prints are dry I have added some gum arabic transfer elements in
gold and silver ink.
Really sparking off some ideas for me.
Love these Sue. Another technique to try :-)
Thank you for such a great workshop on Saturday.
Wonderful - very inspirational!
I thought you were my friend? Isn't it enough for you that I'm doing a four part gum arabic transfer and wrestling with ideas for where to stick that fish slice!!!!! Now you get me all excited about collagraph textures and I want to rush off and do some plates BUT I'm going on some monoprinting course on Saturday with a hard task master so how on earth can I fit it all in!!!!! I know, what a drama queen. See you Saturday chum x
these are interesting
saw some of your prints at Waterperry gardens when visiting Oxford - a real treat!!
Wish I could have been in this workshop! Love what you're doing and what great inspiration for a series. Oh my....want to learn more, but alas, reside in NC, USA. So I shall continue to admire and support your work via the blogosphere. Seriously, thanks for sharing it.
These are great little collagraphs, lovely textures.
I first discovered collograpohs thorugh Deborah Putnoi, and seeing these refreshed why I love them - the spontaneous nature and the seemingly haphazard way they are made..
Beautiful prints! I've tried the gum arabic tranfer and it is very cool, You have some really great ideas incorporate it with other printmaking techniques.
Thanks for sharing!
Sue Brown! Your work is so beautiful, I made a mistake and Pinned before I read...I wanted to bookmark your site! Anyway, then I unPinned it and subscribed instead - much better, and I hope you forgive me!
Lovely work, Sue! I have always wanted to try collagraph; now I'm even more anxious to do it!
