Paper Doll & Chine Collé


Monotype with rice paper chine collé

Still playing with the paper doll idea I used a chinese brush and oil based inks to paint the image on a plexiglass plate. I then added chine collé newspaper dolls and tinted rice paper and ran it through the press. Of the paper doll series, this is my favourite.

I then added some scraps of the tinted rice paper to the inked lino block below.


Endless possibilities with chine collé aren't there? Now I'm back to cutting lino again.

The first one's rude! If I showed myself off publicly in my underpants, I'd be arrested.

Yes, that one is my favorite so far too! I think you've found your medium Robyn - these are truly wonderful.

You are so innovative - this printing lark has certainly opened many doors for you. Congrats on all the experimenting. Paper Doll results are great.

Robyn said...

Casey - You are way too generous, but I do appreciate your encouragement. :) In printmaking, I think I've finally found a way to loosen up my work.

Joan - I'm enjoying playing with all the possibilities, Joan. Thank you.

Dermott - You should be arrested full stop.

I agree - this one is the best this is going to be a really interesting series

Robyn said...

Vivien - I was looking at your linoprinting proof while you were commenting here. Small world eh? :)

I'm just discovered how interesting it is to use the same image in different ways. It's very freeing - but probably getting a bit boring for visitors ;) Thanks, I do feel there is a germ of something in this series - it may take a while to evolve.

Love these...adds warmth to the lino cut. Nice work!

I don't think it's boring at all - I think it just shows how investing some time in print-making can produce diverse results as well as having a positive impact on creativity!

Robyn said...

Kay - Many thanks for your comment. I see you've worked in Australia too.

Katherine - I've only started scratching the surface of what is possible in printmaking. Warning though, I think once one takes those first steps with linocuts the desire to own a press is almost inevitable.

vivien said...

I second that! a press is on my want list and has been for ages :>)


series are interesting and do show your imagination as you work around an idea :>)

I can see why you love this one. I think the saturated colors and bold prints go very well with the subject.

Joan Sandford-Cook said...

Its me again Robyn - Ive been enjoying all your experimental works of late I have sent you a BLOG AWARD in my today's post.

Robyn said...

Vivien - I'm sure you will get your press eventually, it will go beautifully with your gorgeous plan drawers.

Laura - Thank you, I think my line work is loosening up, but maybe it's just becoming naive.

Joan - That's very kind of you. I look forward to checking out the new blogs you've introduced me to as well.
