Monoprints All Weekend

What a long week it has been! I’ve been working on color monoprints to be used for “Cats Cradle”. I think I made around 20 different versions. Here’s a pic of my very messy work area.

I always use oil based ink, go of course by the time I was done paint was all over everything!

Below is one of the monoprint plates before the impression.

And after I printed it to my paper.

One of my favorite textures that I used was surgical gauze. I also used a fork, thread, sponge, scrap paper that I had printed on before, q-tips, etc. See the surgical gauze below and the great texture it left.

And, finally here’s a small line-up of some of the prints I made. I hope they work well with the linocut!
