Studio activity
STUDIO ACTIVITY

  • DESIGN PROBLEM: TSW create a series of original prints from one print plate to depict an important relationship.

    OPTION #1 Subtractive Cardboard Print

    • Make a SIMPLE drawing on corrugated cardboard that depicts an important RELATIONSHIP

    • Using an Exacto knife, cut through the top layer of cardboard (not too deep!)

    • Using a SUBTRACTIVE PROCESS, peel away desired sections of cardboard to reveal the corrugated interior.


Studio activity1
STUDIO ACTIVITY

OPTION #1 Collograph Print & Frottage

  • Ink the print plate w/ brayer and printing ink

  • Center inked plate, face down, on print paper; press down firmly so paper temporarily adheres to plate

  • With plate still stuck to surface of paper, turn the unit over. Use the bowl of a spoon as a “barren”. Rub in circles over the back of the print paper until sure that you have covered the entire printing area

  • Carefully peel the paper from the plate (“PULL THE PRINT”)


Instructor Exemplar: Subtractive Cardboard

Studio activity2
STUDIO ACTIVITY

  • OPTIONS #2 & #3: Additive Collograph

    • Cut simple shapes from thin cardboard and arrange them on a sheet of corrugated cardboard to produce the image of a RELATIONSHIP. Allow to dry for about 15 minutes. This will become your print plate.

    • FROTTAGE TECHNIQUE:

      • Place collograph, face down, on a piece of white paper

      • Tape in place (top & bottom edge) with masking tape

      • Peel desired crayons. Rub sides of crayons over surface of the paper to transfer image from the collograph plate that is tapped underneath it.

      • DO NOT REMOVE TAPE FROM COLLOGRAPH until you are satisfied with the rubbing.
