    Medium: Collagraph - a form of handmade printing.

    Unlike many forms of printmaking, collagraphy primarily requires the application of materials to a surface rather than the removal. In a collagraph, textural material is added to the surface of the ‘support’ or base block although the base block may also form an integral part of the design through peeling and scoring.

    The end result of all these forms of printmaking is a plate or block covered with raised or indented areas which will hold varying amounts of ink. This ink is then transferred to the paper via pressure either through the use of a press or manual burnishing (rubbing).
