More Sloppy Monoprinting

I recently bought Claire Benn and Leslie Morgan's new (I think) "Making Your Mark" book with DVD. Judith and I only made it 3/4 of the way though the DVD before we launched out of our chairs and started to sloppy monoprint and use other mark making techniques we'd just seen. I have to admit, the sloppy monoprinting really appealed to me. Here I am having a go at it.

 Sloping out the print paste
 Really getting into it
 This was the "before". I had "deconstructed" a screen (boring) so this made a great candidate.

 Brings new meaning to swiping a credit card.

 In case I forget my name (smile)

 Wet plastic sheeting

 This is the effect of the bubbles (yum)
 applying print paste to a 6"square Plexiglas square with a handle on it.
 Lets obscure the squares with some sloppy monoprinting.

 That's better
washed and ironed
I used this roller I made at Wen Redmonds painting class with print paste on this small piece
 washed out and ironed

 I did this scraping with a credit card.
The ever popular clean-up rags
