Introduction to Printmaking: Dry Point

Monoprinting and Chine Colle

If I actually soak it for 5 minutes and then wait for the sheen to disappear before printing, the paper accepts the pigment much more readily from the plate. (not necessarily a better result, depending on what you are aiming for) - Using a spoon to burnish, I go over the print 5 - 6 times, (vertical, horizontal, two diagonals, and circles) attempting to fully cover the print area each time. I got substantially better prints once I started to burnish more heavily and longer. - If I add gum arabic to either the surface of the plate or to the watercolour paint, the pigment appears to be more easily released from the plate. . - Some colours are more likely to transfer fully. Hope this info helps, even if it gives you just the basis for some additional experimentation. Sue Brown Printmaker: COLLAGRAPH GALLERY.

Mystory. PaperArtsy: 2016 Topic #9 Mono Printing {Challenge} Another older technique still used today is screenprinting, originally called silkscreen printing as silk was used before the invention of synthetic mesh.

PaperArtsy: 2016 Topic #9 Mono Printing {Challenge}

Evidence of this goes back to China in 960 AD and did not arrive in the West until the 18th century. A blocking template or stencil is used to cover the mesh in the chosen design. Then a blade or squeegee is used to pull paint or ink across the mesh. The medium seeps through the mesh onto the chosen substrate, with only the blanked out areas left clear. Andy Warhol made screen printing popular in the 1960's, here he is working on one of his iconic images. Many layers can be added,each a different colour, take a look at this screen print.. this has 21 colours.

The July/August 2012 Somerset Studio had an article about stencils, in my column Make It Your Own. Recently I have been enjoying using Tyvek to cut stencils with a dual purpose. The material is easy to handle and is so thin it works very nicely with acrylic paint. It also retains the paint better than an acetate stencil which suits my purpose of employing the stencils to make marks, then incorporate the actual piece as a collage element.
