Chine collée

Is another way to create great prints. 

Chine collée is when using a very thin Asian paper f.i. mulberry paper and adhere it on a thicker "normal" printing paper. This way I can create fantastic colors on whole areas of a paper. It can give the feeling of a mix between watercolor and aquatint with colors in different layers. Using different tools and different amount of water when inking the paper gives different effects on the print.

Then it can be used as it is; used together with a copperplate or together with embossing. It means that I add some steps in the creative process of printing - ink the mulberry paper in the color (colors) I want on both sides, attach the inked mulberry paper to a thicker printing paper with wheat paste glue. After that it has to dry for at least a week. Then it is time to decide if I want to use a copper plate and print that on the paper - inked or non-inked - and or embossing the paper through other materials such as cardboard to create a relief. Or leave it as it is...
