Welcome to my Blog

Collagraph, carborundum and fire

Following on from a course with Peter Wray and Judy Collins that I attended in the summer,  I thought it would be fun to experiment further with one or two of the techniques that they introduced  to us.  So I and a couple of accomplices took a few pieces of aluminium plate, applied parcel tape, acrylic paint, masking tape, sellotape and tile cement and tried scorching them to make random textures.  It was so cold outside (being the safest place to wield a blow torch) that the process was even more uncontrollable than usual.  We trusted to the elements for a bit and then gave up and came inside.


We did, however, come up with some entertaining results and the usual food for thought.
