What is a collagraph?

Collagraphy is a printmaking process in which a piece of card or similar surface is used as a printing plate. Textures can be applied to the surface using a variety of materials from wool and string to plaster or textured wallpaper. The surface of the card can also be cut with a craft knife to create lines and images. The plate is then sealed with varnish before etching ink is applied. The ink will stick differently to the different surfaces and it will stay within the cut marks when the surrounding area is wiped clean. An etching press is used to process the plate. Wet paper is placed on top of the plate as it goes through the press. You will notice the indentation around an original collagraph image where the plate has been pressed into the paper. As each collagraph is inked and printed by hand there will be slight differences between the prints which adds to their appeal. I tend to limit print runs to 50 of each image as the plate begins to deteriorate after passing through the press too many times.

 

What is a giclee?

This description is taken from the Fine Art Trade Guild:
"It is a digital print. A giclée is the term for a fine art digital print, often a reproduction but occasionally a computer generated original. It is made from a file stored on a computer. Before the advent of fine art quality digital prints, the vast majority of fine art prints were made using offset lithography. Giclée is the French word for 'squirt', as this is the way that the ink is applied to the paper or canvas. Giclée prints have become an established part of the print trade in the UK since about 1999."
