Printmaking


I've done another print that I am so excited about... what a thrill to lift the felts after rolling the plate and paper through the press and see that your print came out pretty much like you hoped it would. This is my first chine collé print and I am thrilled with how it came out. I used the same plate that I had used last week but added the color with the chine collé technique and I inked it a little differently. This one is going to hang in my kitchen....

This came out super!!! It's much clearer than the first one you did. I bet it will look wonderful framed and hanging in your kitchen.

Wow, this is gorgeous. I enjoyed reading your posts about the printmaking since I have never tried it and don't know much about it.
