The collographs were made from corrugated and regular cardboard.  We cut the desired shapes and glued them onto a larger piece of cardboard.  We then sealed the surface with modpodge. After it was dry, we inked the board with a brayer and ran it through the press.  I'm sure it would work just as well to use the back of a wooden spoon to transfer the image though.  Given more time, I think it would be interesting to work into them with another medium like colored pencil. Nevertheless, they did a great job!
