Collagraph is a most remarkable way to make prints, and one of the most enjoyable, requiring no previous experience!
A collage is made on mat board, using varied textures and materials, then coated with polymer to seal it. It is inked up using both etching ink, and rolling on color for specialized coloring if desired. Any type of image is agreeable with collagraph, either representational or abstract. Come out and experience this wonderful way of making prints!
