Kingsley Parker "Steaming"
Etching & Carborundum Collagraph
44 x 15.5

After printing Daggership, Kingsley made a carborundum collagraph plate on clear mylar. It was shape-cut so that the ship, smokestack of the etching plate (and the whites) would print with the mylar placed on top of the copper etching plate. The collagraph was inked and wiped in ochre, then placed atop the etching plate which had already been inked and wiped in black. Lastly, the combo-plate was tarlatan wiped with the black tarlatan to accent the texture of the thick carborundum paste, appearing like black waves.
