A Collagraph print is one made from a plate collaged with different textures. A base plate of mountcard or the reverse side of old etching plates can be used. The process is a combination of intaglio and relief. Collage your plate with texture by gluing on wallpaper or torn cardboard shapes with PVA wood glue. It is an incredibly versatile way and appeals to many artists and suits how they work.
