Today was another glorious day to be outside and in the studio. My friend MJ loaned me her printing press to make some collagraph prints. My goal was to print some images onto silk organza in order to incorporate the prints into future encaustic paintings. I created the plate using pieces of cut fabric. I love the way the patterned surface of the fabric is evident in the print. Here's a few pics of the plate and the final result on silk. Worked out great ad so I did several prints on various hand dyed silks.
