Experimental Methods in Monotype
In this special collaborative class, Mary and Jessica will push you to experiment with every possible monotype technique they can conjure up! Monotypes are one of a kind prints made by applying (and removing) inks with a paintbrush or a roller to a polymer plate and then printing the image onto paper.
Additional layers can be created by applying another element to the plate and passing it through the press one or more times, resulting in rich, layered, complex prints. Inks can be wiped and scratched off, dotted on, applied or blocked with stencils and more.
In this class we will also teach how to incorporate watercolors painted onto Yupo paper as well as how to use milk cartons to add etched lines to your prints.
So much to do! We invite the experienced and the inexperienced to join us in this creative, wild journey into the nearly infinite possibilities of monotypes…
