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 made our paper wet using a sponge so the paper was pliable and flexible.
We mad a sandwich with felt on the bottom, our painted plate in the middle, with the wet paper and another sheet of dry paper on top. We then pressed down all over our plate getting our fingers into all of the grooves.
Some beautiful prints were revealed showing traces of textures from the materials we used.
