Beautiful Collographs

This week at Merton Park After School Art Club we learnt to make a collograph print.

We refined our plates made last week that were based on our drawings of rusty old car parts.

We then mixed some acrylic paint to the right consistency and applied it to our plate.DSC_0006 DSC_0008

We made our paper wet using a sponge so the paper was pliable and flexible.

Some beautiful prints were revealed showing traces of textures from the materials we used.

We experimented with different papers and colours and different amounts of water and paint consistency.DSC_0032 DSC_0034 DSC_0036

We tried mixing colours as we reused our plates.DSC_0039 DSC_0040 DSC_0041 DSC_0042 DSC_0043 DSC_0046

The results were quite beautiful. we will experiment with different shapes next time to make a giant printed machine that we all make a part of and join together.DSC_0048 DSC_0050
