Chine Colle

To make a good chine colle - (pronounced sheen collay) - print you would need to use a Press, as the very thin paper you adhese as 'added colour/pattern' will then look integrated into the print - 

however, you can make false chine colle prints using a Gelli Plate by applying the additions, (which would be on very thin paper), before printing over, or afterwards - as collage.   

Using calligraphic rice paper is excellent - (tissue paper can also be used, but make sure it is the correct quality).  Using a printer, find a design/colour/shape that you like, and print onto the rice paper, cut out your shape and adhese this on to your print.

I have used Nori Paste adhesive, which is excellent.
. . . apologies - as I don't know who the artists are that have made these lovely prints - unfortunately they aren't mine :(
