Collagraph Printing on Handmade Paper!
Here is a video clip of a custom collagraph plate I created being printed onto handmade paper. In addition to the debossed paper, the magnesium carbonate that I add to the water-based ink creates a really wonderful relief surface. At the end, I show both the plate and the imprint. The plate is made with heavy matte gel medium that was debossed with natural textures from leaves and vines as well as synthetic lace material.
