|Paint was layered on the printing plate . Then the marks were made in the paint. The Star shape was a metal cookie stamp on a handle.|
the frugal crafter has a video of how to do mono prints and she also has tested recipies on how to make your own gelli plate.
Make marks in the paint with stamps, roller stamps, brushes, even your fingers.
Then take the Lutradur and lie in on top of the paint.
Pat it down. Or use a clean dry brayer to roll over it.
Then carefully peel the print off and set aside to dry. Pattern and colour at once!
|This was done with roller stamps.|
Mono printing is endless fun. Each print is unique. Sometimes you can get a second lighter print.
Grab your paints, stamps, string, mark makers of any kind. I am always on the look out for interesting potato mashers now.
You can use mono printing with paper of course or fabric but I like the way the lutradur holds structure or form and allows for the translucent of the lutradur.
The plates wipe clean quickly so you can create many prints in a short time to add to your stash for mixed media supplies or your art work.
So try some mono printing the next time you feel the need to create!
Have you used mono prints in your work? or tried it with Lutradur?
