Hand printed on cotton paper, Wonder Weed XI is printed from a collagraph plate inked intaglio and relief with individually inked real wild flower plants used as the mono print element. The collagraph plate is inked in a blue gray etching ink then a pink- red relief print ink was rolled across the surface. The plants were inked in green prior to placing on the collagraph plate and passed through an etching press. A collagraph is rather like printing from a collage and results in an embossed print. Extra details, including the health and safety symbol for ‘harmful to the environment’ has been added with screenprint.

This print both celebrates the potency of weeds and protests against the use of chemicals such as weed killer and pesticides!

All my prints are printed by hand myself, although I also print for other artists in my role as master printmaker.

Image = 15x15cm; approx 6inchesx 6inches
Paper size = 34x28cn; approx 13 ½ x11 inches

IF your Etsy account is currently in a “test” you might not be able to see my shipping costs very easily. Rest assured, I do ship worldwide and you will be able to see my shipping costs when you place the item in the shopping cart. I endeavour to keep my shipping costs as moderate as I can.

The print is signed, titled and numbered in pencil. 1 / 1 means it’s a one of a kind.
It is also embossed with a small version of my workshop's logo. The embosser is also made by myself.

This artwork was conceived and created solely as an original fine art print. Unlike a gicleé print or any other computer print out, none of my prints are reproductions of a pre-existing painting or drawing .

I like to use top quality heavy weight paper (this one is Somerset 100% cotton, Velvet, 300gm) so It is best not to roll up prints for posting, especially when the printing process results in a fair amount of embossing. I will therefore only ship my prints flat and protected with card.
