Experimental methods are more and more used for making a printing plate.New technologies move that same plate from material world in to digital existence and the printing is done on manydifferent surfaces which have not been used before. Research and experimentation in collagraphy have shown that printmaking can retain some of itstraditional values and still be able to expand and transform. The need for wideracceptance of collagraphy arises from the need to experiment with many different materials which are easilyobtained from our surrounding. It also follows the need to adapt to modern way of life which has grownfaster in recent years and lives us less and less time for ourselves and our creativity. Collagraphy allows much faster making of the printing plates and it can be done by using non-toxic materials. The goal is to make printmaking a little easier and to simplify certain procedures in making of the plate. This paper describes the results and experiences in making printing forms that are obtained using non-standard materials. The plate can be made from anything that surrounds uswhich also can make printmaking easier to understand for beginners and chipper for constant practitioners.
