Painting Techniques day 9
Yes, I am not finished with monoprinting. This I think will be something different you might not have ever seen before. I learned to do this from a friend, Margaret Sheehan, from New Hampshire.
This first one is done on a sheet of poly film with a potato masher. I think I am using 6 mil which is pretty heavy. I painted some paint on to the poly film and pushed the potato masher through it as I twisted my wrist.
Lay on the fabric and rub the surface.
I love this
I just added some more turquoise to the center since there seemed to be plenty of purple still on the poly.
These are prints I pulled previously onto organza
You might remember my smacker. I learned about this technique from a local woman who learned it at a workshop.
What a wonderful texture.
Since I can't stand to waste paint I thought why not take a print off the glass.
There was still paint left so I misted with water and took another blotty print.
