Making the block

Eventually this will be an accordion fold book (fingers crossed).

It’s a combination of cutting into the plate and applying a heavy texture gel and a plaster/PVA/water mix. The red speckles have come off the sequin waste I’m using to make a bubble texture, I’m hoping the foil won’t print.

It needs a couple of days to dry out thoroughly then a few layers of shellac before I print it.


  1. Looking forward to seeing the result!

    1. I'm hoping that it looks similar to the test piece but I find it difficult to predict with collagraph

  2. Looking good so far Jac...fingers crossed for you.

  3. Hi, just caught up with your recent posts, very interested in your collagraph plates, super work! I love this medium but haven't done any for some time, so great to see!


I really appreciate hearing from you. Thank you for taking the time.
