Collagraph is a printmaking technique which operates, as the name suggests, on the basis of collage. It is a particularly robust, direct and unfussy type of printmaking, with the distinct advantage that it helps one avoid the temptations of being too intentional with one`s images, as one might be with lino, line-etching, or silkscreen. Because the surfaces one creates are relatively unpredictable and indirect, one avoids the temptation merely to illustrate.


By adding marks, textures and surfaces to a thin base plate, a low relief is created. This can then be inked up in a number of ways:-
a) by rubbing ink, or inks, into the grooves and fissures (the intaglio). The superficial ink is then wiped away using cotton rag, and a print can be taken which echoes the deeper surfaces of the plate (this is the basic principle of an intaglio print).
b) by rolling ink, or inks, over the top surfaces and then taking a print (a relief print)
c) by rubbing ink, or inks, into the grooves and fissures (the intaglio), wiping away the superficial ink using cotton rag, and then rolling ink, or inks, over the top surfaces (a relief print and intaglio print combined).
The result of the last inking process is a particularly rich image.
There are refinements to all these processes
