I get really excited about chine colle.Perfectly collaged paper with printing is beautiful.The printing I'm currently doing is screenprinted, then gluedso not technically Chine Collebut I wanted to mount little prints on contrasting paperand do it all proper style made a damp pack, wetting the paper, stacking it then wrapping in plastic.dampened the print, front and back, applied a thin coat of methyl cellulose with a brush then wiped most of it off with paper towelplaced the print onto the support paper, laid a sheet of blank newsprint ontop and applied pressure to adhear drying stack made by alternating sheets of cardboard and blotters with the assembled printsand  weighted with block weights from an out of service weightlifting machine
