Happy Valentines Day

We made collographs (gluing low relief things onto a printing plate, then printing)

We thought about what we were going to make, we made a sketch, glued cardboard onto a plate (foamcore-- recycled) and then inked the plate and pulled our prints. They turned out wonderfully!

Here are 2 examples!

This one is a very traditional Valentines Card:

(sketch, plate, final signed print)

The next one one started off as a traditional looking card, but when printed, I think that it looks like a group of gemstones -- diamonds and rubies!

Click on them to see them larger -- they look great!
