This week we tried our hand at Chine-colle. Chine-colle is a technique in printmaking where paper of a different color or texture is adhered to the overall piece. The paper, usually in pre-cut shapes, is bonded to the heavier support paper of the print in the printmaking process. It is not just glued to the print as a collage element, it is more embossed into the paper as part of the printmaking process. Below is one Chine-colle and three dry point etching prints.
I have been taking a course with Peter McLean at the Belconnen Arts Centre on Dry Point Etching. I had so enjoyed the classes with Jo Hollier that I jumped at the chance to try my hand at it again.
Peter is a very supportive tutor who has a lovely laid back attitude. It has been a pleasure to take this course.
These prints are from the first week. Compared to the rest of the class my prints are much more stylized. It will be interesting to see how I progress.
