I had to add a post because I hate the photo in the last post. The colour of the shellac against the tiles - blurgh. So I thought I'd post a photo of something beautiful, and what could be more gorgeous than my little Coco?!! This was taken about 6 weeks ago and I'm sure she has a tiny bit more hair now. Growing hair is not her strong point. Being adorable is (most of the time). :)

OK, I admit that when the printmaking class moved on to doing collographs, I was less than excited. I mean, you make a collage by gluing stuff on some card. Bore snore. But then you coat it with shellac and it becomes a printing plate! Unfortunately, I didn't put much effort into my plates (I was too busy rolling my eyes) but I'm still happy with some of the effects I ended up with. I've now been inspired to do another plate, and am looking forward to shellacking it in this week's class. (By which point I'll be over collographs again).
*I've taken a break from my linocut. I'll show you a finished print when I end up with one I'm happy with. Right now, we just need some space.
