I hope all my printmaking stuff has not gotten old yet. quest 14 is…

Make a Collograph! A collograph is a very simple form of printmaking that costs next to nothing and can be done with items easily found around ones home. Basically you are making a relief print by gluing various items onto a piece of cardboard then rolling paint on and pressing it. if you want to use your printing plate many times you need to seal it you could use shellac but i plan to use acrylic gel medium because that’s what i have handy. i thin you could just paint it with some acrylic paint on the front and back and that would work as well. There are more advanced ways of printing collographs that involve an actual printing press but this quest is about doing something simple and fun that one does not need a press for. here is a video i found with really simple basic instructions for making a Collograph and in the video they use a brayer or roller but i suspect if you are careful you could even use a paintbrush.

don’t limit yourself to only using cardboard. you can use string, fabric, aluminum foil, really anything can be used as long as the raised part of the plate is all about the same height. get creative and have fun.

bonus points for doing several plates and making a print with various colors.

eta* i just found this great web page with really easy to follow simple instructions for making a collograph

It can be short or long, told in words or pictures,Ā  however you want to interpret this.

 

And now the Quest waits silently, sometimes sprinkling sparkly dust about the room…

The quest is to do something, whatever feels like the right thing for you to do on november 19th which is The International Day For Child Abuse prevention. there is no need to post quest results or anything like that just do something that feels right and if you want to share then share it and if not then that is fine to.
