Mod. 2, Chapter 5. Mono printing with acrylic paints.

When I taught art to primary children, I seemed to do a lot of mono printing! The children loved the surprise of seeing another image emerge and if things were not quite what they hoped for we had great discussions about the piece anyway, and went on to better things! This was always great fun for me too (although could get stressful with a class of 33!) and this is why I was looking forward to doing this part of chapter 5.

 The images marked 1, 2, 3 etc, are made with black acrylic on white paper, a, b, c etc using white acrylic on black paper.

2.I used the short end of a small piece of wood. (It is very small, you can see it on the pale blue card, l.h.s, in the image above). I layered the diagonal strokes which, I think has given it a latticed look.

3. A more controlled pattern here using a rubber tip. (I think this tool is really meant for blending pastels.)

4. Similar marks to 2, but using a palette knife. I call this the ruffled feather look!
