However, some simple RAW instructions are on these links :

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 :(

These are just a few personal photos I took at the exhibition -
I was interested in texture and pattern.
It's quite a substantial exhibition, and worth visiting, but find the 'talking' models a bit disconcerting!
