Re: Hand collotype in process


I am interested in collotype. Right now I'm rather a beginner in this technique, but I already managed to make a couple of reasonably decent plates. What I'm lacking is traditional printing skills, so I would like to learn more about the hand impressions that you mention.

Sadly for me, the website you refer to is entirely in Japanese ...

I am just going to send this link to those who may be interested in Collotype.


I had an opportunity to work with Benrido, a collotype studio in Kyoto, and they are making some prints for me. As you know, they usually use a press to make collotypes, but here they are making hand impressions. We are hoping to bring them for a demonstration or workshop at our studio next year.

We also hope to show a video clip of the entire process soon. I will let you know once it is up.
