Collograph plates

Collograph plates finally printed on Wednesday after being varnished and dried. Actual prints to come shortly.

Also started work on a final 4 set after taking inspiration and ideas from these tester plates.

  1. Hi James,

    I love these plates! Could you tell us a bit about how you make them and what kind of varnish you use as sealant?

    Thanks, Carole

  2. Hey,

    The plates were made onto thick card and are basically just made from just various textures paper and everyday items that I had found. I also used some kind of wall filler paste to create the lumpier sections and then scribed into that. All stuck down with a good helping of PVA.

    As for the varnish I am not sure what its called but I can find out for you.

    Thanks, James
