head test collograph by derekjones head test collograph by derekjones
When I used to do traditional etching I really enjoyed
the idea of "abusing" the plate -scraping and burnishing-
liked the notion that the more one messed about with
the surface the lovelier the result became....
I have missed this element of printmaking since
using solar plates etc....
so I am looking to try some collographs- not
sticking shapes on the plate as much as painting and
scraping the design on with carborundum and various
pastel grounds... this is the first proof and I have done
a bit more work and hope to get this next stage
printed tomorrow.....
I think it will be a good way of doing moody nudes
(which would be a good name for a 60's rock band)

Wonderful, considering the medium. It does give off a moody feel, but if that's the impression you go for - this is well-done.
