Printmaking For A Day

I spent the whole day Saturday printing a couple of collagraph plates. The one pictured above is titled "The Three Deites". Last year I had a hard time getting a decent print from this plate, and so I think this one came out pretty good! I need to start creating more plates.
A collagraph print is created by adhering objects to a surface such as yarn, cardboard, sand, glue, etc.......
Once the objects are adhered, you then ink up the plate and print your image.

Your imageof the three deities are great. I'd like to see more of the prints that you made from this collagraph plate.

I think this is fantastic - I wonder how you take the print off it?

Marilyn - Thanks!

Renate - Thanks!
The next time I print, I will post pics on the different phases of the printing process. It's easier to explain it that way.

Wow Carla I think the print is great. Forgive me, I know little about printmaking, does the print come out embossed as a result of the objects on the plate?
