This weekend course introduces the technique of silk aquatint collagraphs. Rich velvet blacks and a complete tonal range can be achieved using chiffon as a base and experimenting with acrylic mediums and glue to create tones and white. The process can be extended by using filler to produce rich, textural plates. The tonal results of this technique are similar to that of a mezzotint or traditional etched aquatint. This intaglio process is accessible to printmakers looking for a sophisticated way of working with collagraph.
