Module two. Chapter Five.


Patterned Papers

Monoprinting is a technique I haven’t tried before, I was very pleased with the results. I liked the fact that the results were not totally predictable, making a second print when less of the ink was on the glass has also given a pleasing range of tones in my patterned papers.

These first samples were created with ink using various ‘tools’ to make the marks.

These next samples are monoprints using printing ink.

patterned papers0006Net ‘sponge’ torn into strips and laid on glass.

patterned papers0008 This sample taken straight from the glass to remove excess ink before cleaning – I think it is reminiscent of the creases found in the hide of animals such as elephants – a happy accident!

patterned papers0009Another attempt with the net ‘sponge’ this time stretched over the entire glass.

patterned papers0010There is a pattern taken from a sketch of alligator skin scratched into the ink with the end of a paint brush. I think my ink was too thick as the pattern is barely visible but I do like the black markings created when I rubbed the back of the paper.
