Image size 15 x 15 cm (approx 6 x 6") Paper size 21 x 21 cm Printed using oil based inks on 210gsm zerkall printmaking paper.
This small unframed collagraph print is an appealing portrait of a sleepy dachshund puppy. The hand cut plate from which this print is made contains only the outline, eyes and nose of the puppy - all the details of the rest of the portrait, including the fur, are created entirely by the way I slowly and carefully wipe and manipulate the brown and black ink before passing the plate through an etching press with a piece of dampened printmaking paper. There is a video showing the making of this print here.
This technique means that each print is a unique artwork and no two prints will be identical. I will be producing a maximum of fifteen prints from this plate. You will receive number 4 in the edition which is the print shown in the first two images.
Each print is numbered, titled, signed and dated in pencil under the image.
