Collagraph using Recycled Cardboard Printed Intaglio Style without a Press
While we were all staying in, I posted a series of printmaking experiments using common items from around the house. I never posted this one – a Collagraph using Recycled Cardboard Printed Intaglio Style without a Press.
Recycled Packaging Prints without a Press Roundup
- Here is a post that demonstrates an intaglio drypoint etching made from recycled plastic produce containers, printed with a metal soup spoon, painted with watercolor and enhanced with chine colle.
- This post was an experiment to see if I could successfully make a drypoint etching portrait from a Trader Joe’s Biscotti cookie lid, and then print it by stomping on the plate. (Hint: it worked!)
- Make a small monotype portrait print using cardboard, tin foil (aluminum foil) and tube watercolors.
- Create a small portrait drypoint etching from a recycled tomato container, and paint it with watercolors.
- Paint a tiny image on a plastic blueberry container with thinned acrylic paint, and press it to paper to make a monotype print.
- Create a multi-figure full color collagraph print using TetraPak soup or almond milk containers, and then enhance it with colored pencil (this one did use a press).
