Mono Printing with Masks





What cool prints 
develop
using simple household items..

In this video,
I wanted to share 3 common ingredients
that most people can find in their homes..

string..
lace..
leaves..


and create prints from them..




Using a mask is such an interesting way
to add to a print and you often get three prints..

the print itself,
the ghost and the print from the object..


Have fun with this, 
I will be interested to hear your results..

Hope you enjoy some print making this weekend..



and look forward to Part 2 when I share how
easy it is to incorporate your prints in your 
collage and mixed media work..



Have a glorious weekend...
gentle reader...

Enjoyed this. Will this technique work equally well using my gelli plate?

I enjoyed this technique. It is much more doable than others I've seen. Thanks for the tip on the retarder. Now I know one of its applications. I think quite a few of your prints would be lovely as a card. I'm not Unknown, I'm Cheryl Ford from Washington.

Wonderful video. I've never used tracing paper, but I have used deli paper. Although I have a gelli, I am much more comfortable using my large acrylic sheet. I love what you made and look forward to seeing how you use these in your art.

Hi Cheryl! I use retarder when painting, it keeps the paint from drying out and makes it easier to make changes, glad you liked the video! I don't know why it would not work with the gelli plate, try it!!

Oh!! Dr. E. A large acrylic sheet is awesome, try it, I tried the technique on my glass plate and it did not turn out as well, perhaps the cardboard offers more give? Anyway, thanks for stopping by!! x
