|Steampunk Elephant Collagraph Print|
Today I decided to have a look at some of my older collagraph printing plates and do a bit of experimentation with them in different colourways. I really like my Steampunk Elephant printing plate with its cogs etc as it was great fun to design and make. I only ever printed it in a gunmetal grey so wondered what it would look like in my favourite printing ink purple!
Here is the printing plate just starting to be covered in a lovely rich purple ink!
On the etching press ready for the exciting part the printing!
Hot off the press - a Purple Steampunk Elephant!
Here is a sneaky peak at what is going on in the background when I am printing! My printing press is on the dining room table and even when Morpheus the cat is no where to be seen as soon as I start printing he appears to supervise and today to make a nest in my tissue paper!
I think he liked the print although he was a bit upset I wasn't immortalising him in print like I usually do!
The finished Steampunk Elephant collagraph print looking good in purple!
