Printing the Glued Plates

Middle school students in the More Than Words program inked up their cardboard and glue plates and printed on paper. It was fascinating to see the resulting prints. Many were surprised at the results, especially how you can get a variety of tones of ink, depending on how you roll the brayer over areas of the plate. Some students experimented with color, inking up a solid cardboard shape and then printing the glue plate on top.
