Digital Chine Colle

Educational program in Berkeley (United States)

Take your photo-based printmaking to the next level in prints that combine digital imaging, photo-etching and traditional chine colle techniques. We'll first create a "key" image in Photoshop, make film from these images, and expose them on to photopolymer etching plates. Next, you will learn how to create an additional layer of imagery or color using the digital chine colle process. The chine colle layer is created in Photoshop, digitally output onto beautiful Japanese paper, and then combined on the press with the photo-etched plates. The results can range from a subtly colored image to a complex, layered print. Previous Photoshop experience required, previous printmaking experience helpful. Enrollment is limited to 8 students.
