Collagraphy - Rustins
Collagraphy is the method of producing prints from a plate which is made using collage materials. Choose collage materials which all have approximately the same depth so when you come to printing them all the items will come into contact with the paper surface at around the same point of pressure. Once glued to your plate the collage pieces can be coated with a layer of French Polish to seal the surface area in preparation for the ink. Alternatively for a really cheap but effective printing method why not just use some stiff card and a good quality glue such as our Specialist Crafts Strong PVA Adhesive.
We offer the basics you'll require here, then browse our Crafts Collage Materials section for exciting textured materials to stick to your plates. Glisten Mesh, Flower Motifs, Paper Doilies and Tangle Tuff Sisal can all be used to great effect.
