Ellen and Johan’s explorations in Printmaking

From the first meeting up until today, we have made a drypoint and printed it using the chine colle technique.  The press was used for this method.  The new plate is a very intricate collagraph.  I hope to learn more techniques to create more complex plates as well.


A test trial of chine colle and glue print in order to inform me of what the media can do. It is also for the reason of observation of this technique.


First attempt in drypoint. I carved the image into a plastic plate, inked it and used the press to print it.


Second attempt on dry point but with chine colle. A combination between two printing techniques. A stylish work of print.



In this image I am cutting an image for a collagraph which is a work in progress.
