Monoprinting

Well, I’m having such a great load of fun at the moment, I don’t know when I’m going to stop fiddling about with this gel plate – it’s addictive! I obtained supplies to learn these techniques whilst doing the next part of my degree course … although we are supposed to just work on a piece of perspex or glass … sod that, I wanted an excuse to a get a gel press plate, so I did 🙂 (I’m such a rebel)

I have started a sketchbook dedicated to the monoprinting experiments I’m doing. It took a while to get the right paint and technique right as far as transferring images and text is concerned. I also bought a small laser printer because it is a right battle to transfer images that have been printed out using an inkjet printer. I got a dinkie little Pantum, such a cute little thing and works really well.

Anyhow, I will try and do a video (whoa, hold me back) to show how I’m making the monoprints and results. Please ‘don’t watch this space‘ because knowing me I’ll just stuff up any attempt at making a video but my heart is in the right place, I will give it a go …
