Crafting with CreativeBug: Collagraph- Printing without a Press
Collagraphy is a printmaking process in which textured materials are collaged onto a rigid printing plate. When ink is applied to various textures, you'll see an array of interesting tones and shapes on your prints. Book artist and printmaker Sarah Matthews shows you how to make different plates using cardboard, hot glue, craft foam, and string. Then you'll learn Sarah's monoprinting technique with a brayer and Gelli plate to create beautiful prints and unique papers with your handmade stamps.
Learn how to:
- Make unique stamps using materials like cardboard, string, foam sheets, and hot glue
- Make prints with block printing ink and a brayer
- Creatively use leftover printing ink
