A collagraph is a print made from a plate that's built up from any collage material you can stick down onto a base of plexiglas, wood or cardboard. In this case, white wax is the collagraph material to build the plate towards creating texture. A collagraph can be inked and printed as a relief (inking the top surfaces only with a brayer) or intaglio (inking the recesses) or a combination. Intaglio printing requires far more pressure and is why an etching press is employed for this particular method.
This workshop will walk you through every step of the encaustic collagraph method that Wagner pioneered.
