Collagraph print of Edinburgh Castle from a limited edition of 50. This print has been hand -finished with watercolour paint. I tend to use a fun, naïve printmaking style.
The mini collagraph is printed onto 285gsm Fabriano Rosaspina Printmaking Paper. This is printed onto ivory Fabriano paper. The print is framed and will be delivered carefully wrapped to protect the frame and glass.
The print was made by etching into mount card. Waterproof varnish is then applied to the card or “plate”. I process my collagraph plates at Edinburgh Printmakers where I ink the plate by hand using etching ink, before printing each one with an etching press. Due to the nature of the printmaking/hand-painting processes, each print will be slightly different adding to the character of the piece.
