INTRO TO COLLAGRAPH
The word collagraph is a union of the words “collage” and “graphic.” In a nutshell, a collagraph is a collage which is printed. The shapes and textures of the collage elements determine the look of the final piece. The collagraphic method is a less-toxic approach to printmaking.
