I am giving away one of my 'Mermaid's Coin' limited edition collagraph prints. I have only made 10 of these and that is all there will ever be. They are all hand-painted and unique. I even named my art business Mermaid's Coin after I read that it was one of the names given to sand dollars found on the beach.
The ProcessMaking the print is a multi-stage process. I come up with my design for a print and when I'm happy with it, I transfer it onto my printing plate. Then the plate gets sealed and then etched. Then comes the printing. I ink up the plate and put it through the press with my artist quality paper. When it is dry, I set to work bringing it to life with watercolours.
This print depicts a sand dollar and is printed in black ink then tinted with watercolours in turquoise, aqua and periwinkle. It measure approximately 10cm x 10cm and is signed and numbered by me, the artist.
It is protected by a cut mat board, all ready to be framed. It is valued at $90. (There's only a couple left in my etsy store)
