Chine-collé is a special technique in printmaking, in which the image is transferred to a surface that is bonded to a heavier support in the printing process. One purpose is to allow the printmaker to print on a much more delicate surface, such as Japanese paper or linen, that pulls finer details off the plate. This is a traditional definition of this process, but I am an experimenter- so bring on the paper and the prints.

If you have a wood block, linoleum, etching plate or a plate for mono print, bring it! Do you have a piece of paper that you think would bring some extra life to one of these print images? Let me show you how to combine them on a thick piece of printmaking paper.  My favorite paper is Arches Cover, it’s a 100% cotton paper and will hold up just about any other paper. I am also a big fan BFK Rives printmaking papers and they are also 100% cotton. When it comes to papers for the chine-colle´, they can be anything from newspaper and tissue to wrapping and even magazine sheets. There are also a lot of delicate papers that are out there to choose from like mulberry and decorative papers for various design proposes.

So lets get together and try out some new things in the print world-what could go wrong? Nothing, we are making art!

Supplies: Ink and some paper will be provided.  Bring extra paper if you want to make multiple prints.

Batik in Español con Martín Orozco

Sábado, Octubre 27 de 10a a 2p | Cuesta $10

Qué es la técnica de batik?

Es una técnica de teñido por reserva, esta técnica consiste en colorear tejidos y guardarlos por medio de la cera sobre las regiones que no se desean teñir ( zonas reservadas ) fijándose las anilinas en aquellas zonas no reservadas . Este proceso lo podemos repetir las veces que el batik no lo pida, lo que nos permite sobre poner colores, logrando una gran variedad de colores y matices.

Está técnica tiene algo muy particular que se distingue, al desquebrajarse la cera una vez endurecida, permite que se dibujen líneas quebradas o "craqueladas" este craquelado es el señor diferenciador del batik. Cuesta $10. Pagar a la puerta o en el cart abajo.
