dc.description.abstract Chine colle has evolved from a simple process used to reinforce the oriental printmaking papers used by the 19th century French artists to a means of expanding the aesthetic range of printmaking, particularly in combination with more traditional or widely known techniques. In the author's Creative Project, chine colle was used to achieve variations in texture, color, dimension, and overall aesthetic effect, as well as adding representational content to each piece.There were a number of technical problems which needed to be overcome in the execution of these pieces. These included problems relating to paper weight, adhesion, and color fastness. In addition, there are other suitability considerations which the printmaker must address in using chine colle. These include: texture, acceptance of ink, durability and price. The artist who successfully deals with these technical considerations will be able to use chine colle to its fullest advantage. This means having access to a wide range of colors, textures, and dimensions Possible through chine colle. It also enables the artist to exert greater control over these elements than can be achieved through other techniques.The historical, technical, and aesthetic evolution of the chine colle' process has brought it to a point where it can be an important part of the printmaker's repertoire. It is the author's hope that this potential will be fully realized in the years ahead.
