Collotype Workshop Day 2 & 3

On the next days of this week it was hands on. Literary! Yamamoto-san and Yeewon-san teached me how to make my own collotype postcards and 8x10” prints on handmade washi paper. To be honest, after the first cards I thought, hey, I can do this. But then the difficult part came along. Getting the light parts not too light and the dark parts not too dark was really a challenge. Yamamoto-san and Yeewon-san are very patient with me and wash with apparent pleasure the plate with the image every time it gets too streaky. Practice makes perfect... also in this case;) But it is still a long way to go to be a master postcard printer!
