365 Prints - Day 62

Day 62 - Print Plate No.  62
Mount board, oil based inks, newsprint

A smaller plate that I then went on to join up with yesterday's plate. Sometimes I can't help but start to be figurative in my outcomes. The potential for new face shapes and characters is exciting and a possible way I might develop some of these prints.

Trying out different shapes for collagraph print plate and putting it through the mangle press. Paper kept creasing but I don't mind that during this testing stage of the project.

Printed twice to layer up colours.

365 Prints - Day 57

Day 57. Print Plate No. 57
Polystyrene,  oil based inks, newsprint.

I'm not too well today so getting this print up on my blog feels like a big achievement. :/

Simple idea for this print plate but I think it's pretty effective and would work well combined with other types of print plates.

So I've had a change of media today - trying out polystyrene for the print plate and using house hold objects to press into them to create marks. This plate was created by repeatedly pressing a USB stick into the polystyrene.
