Plate making materials

Experimental printmaking involves making plates with lots of different materials, either on their own or combined together in unusual ways. This is especially true of collagraphs which can be made from almost anything. You will find many of these materials in a hardware store, your shed, or the cupboard under the stairs!

I have tried all these out and am always on the lookout for new effective and interesting platemaking materials; let me know about your own discoveries.
