Schley Fish by Paul Helm
"Schley Fish" by Paul Helm

Collagraph - literally a print from a collage - is a highly versatile and exciting printmaking process. Whereas collage is usually the assembly of several different images, collagraph is the of different textures to produce a single image, which can be as simple or as complex as you like. It is suitable for children or for fine artists.

Collagraph appeals to artists who like an experimental approach to image making, trial and error, the happy accident and surprises. It is wonderful for creating rich textures and marks. It is an economical process and I will show you how you can use scraps and commonly found materials.

Each print from a collagraph plate will be different, so it can be called a monoprint or 'one of a kind' which adds value.

UK artist and printmaker Paul Helm spent 25 years in the commercial print and publishing industry. He has also had his own picture framing business and gallery. Traditional printmaking has always interested him and he likes to combine different techniques.

May I put this print into a stained glass suncatcher?

email to auntie_di60@hotmail.com I like the design and would like to make it and post it to a web-site for stained glass when completed but only your permission.

Re: may I

Dear Diane
Yes you may use the fish for your suncatcher if for personal use. Let me know if and when you want to use it commercially.
It would be nice if you could post a link to the website so we can admire your efforts!
