The art of integrating collage materials within a monotype composition is the focus of this demo. You will learn about the differences between chine colle and collage and the various adhesives we’ll use while working with dry paper. You will see a wide range of uses and methods of application and how to approach the relationship between an ongoing composition and the collage elements you have to work with.
