Collagraph Book

Collagraph Book

Here is the first proof of the first plate in the book. It turned out pretty meh. This was mostly done to a) remove the remaining tackiness of the matte and b) make sure that all the information showed up.
The q-tips I used were normal ones, and they didn’t really let me remove what I needed to, so I’m switching over to those makeup ones that are stiffer. Also, I’m switching back to more or less painting the ink on rather than rolling it on. It’ll come out cleaner and look better.

Deuces!
