‘Other World’ Print Plates
In my post of 18th January I looked at both internal and external textures with a view to planning my Other World project print plates. The aim is to produce several small prints to be mounted as a set for my husband who loves space travel, the idea of ‘out there’ and science fiction that might even become reality one day (frankly, I can’t wait for the era of ‘Beam me up, Scottie’).
So, if you’ve been following my blog recently you will see it slowly starting to come together. I’ve created 3 collagraph plates and printing trials are underway. Here’s a look at, and explanation of, each of the plates (for those printmakers amongst you). If you’re not a printmaker, over the next few weeks you can enjoy trying to identify in which print each of the plates has been used.
