Encaustic Collagraph is a unique process for artists to combine wax and printmaking in their studio practice. This printmaking technique involves painting melted wax onto plexiglass and/or Yupo revealing all the subtleties of the brush and gesture in a very direct way. Plates can be further manipulated by stamping, incising, layering, scraping, and removal of the wax.
Once an image is completed, inking as either a relief or intaglio is accomplished with Akua water-soluble inks, and plates are printed on a variety of printmaking papers including Washi. Both press and hand printing of plates yield successful prints.
Subtle, mysterious marks are captured in the wax and transferred to paper resulting in variable prints or editions as the artist chooses. The plate can be used alone or in tandem with other print methods for unending variations.
Artists who love innovative ways to create a printmaking plate will find this workshop an exciting new adventure!

Create beautiful, tonal prints with this painterly printmaking method of making a plate. Learn to construct inexpensive plates of various sizes from plastic and monofilament mesh painted with black acrylic. Work your way back to white by layering polymer gels with brushes and textures. The plate will mirror and resemble your final image. Intaglio printing with non-toxic inks on rag papers yields dense, mezzotint-like surfaces which explore gesture, texture, and tonal effects. A wonderful print experience for all artists.
This 5-day workshop was held in the brand new printmaking building at Edgewood Farm!

Creating Encaustic Collagraphs on YUPO
Saturday and Sunday, March 26-27, 2022
Using a combination of innovative printmaking materials, participants will create plates with hot wax on Yupo, a synthetic paper support. Images can be painted, stamped, textured, incised, and scraped to produce a high and low plate surface ready to ink as either a relief or intaglio. These plates can be combined with monotype and drypoint, are economical, easily cleaned, stored, and cut with scissors or utility knives. Akua soy-based inks will be used on a variety of print papers including washi (Japanese paper). Both hand and press printing options will be explored as well as the use of multiple color plates, transparency, and chine colle'. Part of the learning experience will include discussions of eastern and western papers, demonstrations, finished examples of all techniques and lots of individual attention. All are welcome; some print experience is helpful, but not necessary.
