I will guide you through the each step of the process showing you how to create marks using the reduction method as well as several layering techniques.
Monotype printmaking is an immediate form of printmaking that produces quick results without the need for a press. It has been used by many artists including Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt and Henri Matisse. No cutting or carving is involved. Instead ink is applied to a Perspex sheet and marks are created by removing the ink using soft tools. These marks create an image that is transferred onto paper.
This workshop uses oil based printing inks but clean up will be using non toxic vegetable oil. All materials and paper supplied, please bring an apron and gloves.
