About the Colagraf technique
About the Colagraf technique
The colagraf technique, as we know it here, so it may have another name that we're not aware of, consist on creating an stamp/print, on a wooden plate using:
(belongs to the xylography techniques)

1) first a pretty liquid white mix of plastic filling (usually for filling holes in walls before painting them) with white glue
2) and adding textured stuff to it
3) you let it dry, and then you varnish it and let it dry again
4) You'll use this with xylography inks, and make copies of your stamp as the usual technique for woodcuts, except you'll put the inks in your stamp with brush or your fingers.

You can make all the stamps you want, but none will be exactly the same than the prior ones.
It's a fun process indeed :)
