Tonight, Randy and I went to the first of ten printmaking classes on Monday nights and it was too much fun. We are doing collagraphs and tonight, using several varieties of tape to make the plate, we did some interesting work. Collagraphs are made when textured stuff is glued to a plate, inked, and put through a press. Here is my plate, which I love the look of all by itself. First print - inked the plate and didn't wipe it and here is the result. Hmmmm... Second print, added a little ink and did a lot of wiping. I like this one! We have homework for next week and you can imagine how I can't wait to get into my studio and get back to my press. Not today, though.
