To Hamnavoe ii

” To Hamnavoe ii”  Collagraph Print with Chine Colle from the Exhibition “Street Shapes”. Collagraphy has been called “Poor Man’s Etching” because the printing plates are made with sealed card rather than copper or zinc. The plates are less durable than their copper cousins but the prints are just as hardy with a different quality to the copper plate. It’s easier to make the plates big and the plates can have things glued on to them; glue, potters grog, carbonundrum can be used to make big dark painterly marks.
