Two days of making Collagraph and Carborundum prints
These prints are made by sticking any or all of a variety of materials, e.g. lace, wallpaper, foil, rubber bands, string, sand paper, tape and carborundum to a base of card, ply or aluminium, and adding impressions made into polyfiller, tile cement or acrylic . Some prints are made from carborundum and glue alone. They’re printed by rubbing ink into the grooves, wiping off the excess and taking an impression on damp paper. Sometimes ink is rolled over the top layer of the surface too, to take advantage of the “relief” effect. Often the substrates are as exciting as the prints themselves and just as “showable”. In short we use basic household materials to make magic!
