What to glue/do & what not to do/glue

What you can glue (or do) to your mat board to make a collagraph plate:
  • leaves
  • tape (duct tape, scotch tape, masking tape, etc.)
  • scraps of ribbon
  • pieces of cardboard
  • pieces of card-stock
  • feathers
  • designs with Elmer's glue
  • designs with modeling paste
  • sand
  • cut into it with an x-acto knife
  • coins (as long as they aren't valuable)
  • fabric
  • yarn
  • string
What you shouldn't do (at least for this project)

  • glue beads, sugar, anything over 1/8 to a 1/4 inch thick, or beans.
  • if you choose to put writing in your collagraph make sure it's backwards (it will print in reverse)
