About a Collagraph Print
Collagraph blocks are made by layering various textures, then adding varnish; finer detail is added by scratching into the varnish. Then the block is ready to be inked, which is a slow process of adding ink and wiping away excess ink and burnishing in order to capture the final detail.
Finally the block is printed on to thick, damp printing paper and put through an etching press. Where the inks and textures are embedded into the paper, this gives collagraph prints a unique embossed feel.
