I have been having such a good time making monoprints with branches, weeds, and flowers – I’ve done this before with my gelli plate, but recently I have been doing it with a sheet of aluminum foil. What have I done differently? I have been using chaos layers or a surface with paint of some sort on it and then doing the monoprint on that surface. After the paint dries, I go in with Posca pens (acrylic paint markers) or soft pastels and add line work. It’s so much fun!
I will be delivering my first round of monoprint art to a local shop to be for sale. The second round will be taken to the shop once my mat boards arrive. Fingers crossed that they sell! I’d love to start paying myself back for all the art supplies that I have been purchasing.
This is one of my favorite monoprints from this first round!
