Another chine collé print


I'm still experimenting and still thrilled to see the result when I pull up those felts... even when the result isn't as good as I would have liked. This week I did several prints but only one chine collé and it's going to hang in my studio. I didn't cut the grey quite right so the chine collé part is a little off. I also decided, after seeing the finished piece, that I should have used a lighter color for the grey. I'm pleased enough to hang it in my studio but not enough to put it out there to sell. I still have much to learn about printmaking.

Helen, this is look so good, I like the print. I just spent an hour on the web reading about this process and some printmaking. A lot of steps to get to this kind of result, very impressive. You're doing so well with this!!

Helen, These look so interesting. I'll have to check out how a "chine colle'" is done. I'm not familiar with it.
