Preparing chine collé

I’ve been painting acid-free tissue paper – to use when printing – in preparation for a 5 day collagraph course I’m about to attend. I used very watered-down acrylic paints, allowed the tissue to dry and then ironed the pieces flat, as the watery solution crinkled the paper.

They are beautifully translucent, with each one being around A4 in size. The wet paints slightly pooled where the tissue crinkled, creating texture and blending of colours.

I’m looking forward to seeing how I can use them in the upcoming course.
