Each collagraph plate is made up of mountboard, tape, glue and sometimes carborundum. I then scratch and cut away pieces of the mountboard until I have the image I want. I mix up ink for each printing session then ink up each plate by hand with sticky ink. Then the ink is wiped back so it only remains in the scratched lines and the cut away board adding colour by a technique known as a la poupee. The plate is then put onto a printing press and pulled through with dampened paper on top. This whole inking up process has to be repeated for each print thereafter which is why prints can vary a little in colour making each print unique and original which I feel is all part of their charm.
They are limited edition prints. Signed and numbered in pencil. unframed and unmounted.
You will receive a numbered edition of 25
Image size 29cm x 29cm
Paper size 38cm x 38cm
Because each print is made to order it can take a few days to get them printed and to let the ink dry before posting them out. I will always aim to get them out to as soon as possible.
Refunds and Exchanges
I’ll package your prints well so I won’t expect any postal damage, but in the event of receiving a less than perfect print please send a photo of the damage and I’ll arrange a replacement. I also appreciate that sometimes it may be difficult to know that you really love a piece of art until you see it in person. I will gladly refund the purchase price of any print after it has been safely returned in the condition it was shipped and also that you accept the return shipping costs.
