Collagraphs

This is a new medium for me. The plate is created with cardboard and collage of paper, glue, acrylic materials, cutouts and such. After the plate is sealed the ink is smeared and then taken off with tarlatan. There is always an element of surprise as to how the image will print and it is nearly impossible (at least for me) to create an identical print. :)
