Hello Everyone! I back to share my remaining monoprints for Birgit Koopsen's Instagram challenge.
Day 22 - Monochromatic
Day 23 - Patterned Paper
The great thing about patterned paper, is that it sometimes gives you an image resist. Can you spot the little flower on the patterned paper, from a previous print?
Day 24 - Circles. Always a favourite...so many prints!
This print was made with multiple mops ups from previous days.
Day 25 - Wax Crayons. Draw a design with crayons onto paper, pressing hard to get a thick layer. Use acrylic paint on your gel plate to print on your design, then once the paint is dry, scrape the paint off where the wax is. Hard on the hands this one! Gave me crampy hands!
Day 26 - Recycle
Day 27 - Burlap/Hessian. The loose strands are great to use too.
Day 28 - Vaseline. Lovely and messy, but fun results!
Day 29 - Embossing Folders. I have a tonne of these that don't get much use these days, so great for my gel printing.
And finally, Day 30 - Type/Text. I did some image resist with magazine pages and newspaper, and also stamped onto the gel plate with text stamps.
I have a wonderfully large selection of prints now, and I can't wait to use them in my art. I may just frame some of my favourites!
Thanks for visiting,
