This is a collagraph print on watercolour paper. A collagraph print is an intaglio print using a printing plate which is often made of cardboard and various materials which have been added to it as you would when making a collage. To print an intaglio plate, ink is applied to the surface by wiping and/or dabbing the plate to push the ink into the bitten grooves. The plate is and then rubbed with tarlatan cloth to remove most of the excess ink. The final smooth wipe is often done with newspaper followed by tissue paper leaving ink only in the incisions. A damp piece of paper is placed on top of the plate, so that when going through the press the damp paper will be able to be squeezed into the plate's ink-filled grooves. The paper and plate are then covered by a thick blanket to ensure even pressure when going through the rolling press. The rolling press applies very high pressure through the blanket to push the paper into the grooves on the plate. The blanket is then lifted, revealing the paper and printed image.
