New Project – Buttons

buttons-linocut-printmakingI’m finally getting back into my studio and getting back to work, and the theme is “buttons”. I’m trying something new, well, maybe not new, I’ve tried this technique before and then abandon it again for the familiar linoleum cut.

This is a different form of printmaking called collagraph. The term collagraph refers to a collage board where the materials are assembled on a flat base or plate (matrix) to form a relief block with different surface levels and textures.

Collagraph plates are created by sticking and gluing materials like textured paper or fabric onto the plate and then coated with varnish or acrylic medium afterwards to protect the materials.

I will reveal a little bit more of the plate when I post again. My fingers are getting sore from cutting!
