A collagraph print is made from a surface on which collage elements and texture have been applied. Plates will be created using GOLDEN mediums and gels and printed with GOLDEN OPEN Acrylic paint. You will learn to create colorful, textured, one-of-a-kind prints using multiple plates. This is a very direct, and painterly way to make a print on paper with an embossed surface using the press. Both the making of the plates and the inking process allow for endless possibilities. I will demonstrate printing multiple plates for layering, transparency, and texture building. This low–tech approach to printmaking will produce stunning qualities and rich color combinations.
