I have LOADS of books and old craft magazines and they have lots and lots of projects in them. I tend to read them and think "someday I will try that out". Well- what am I waiting for?? While I was doing the never ending cleaning of the craft room this week I found some re-inkers for the colorsnap ink pads and I decided to try out mono-printing. Mono printing is a form of printmaking that produces one unique image. Even if I do a second attempt at the print- it is not exactly the same as the first print. The type of monoprinting I tried out involves putting the ink on a surface- etching into the ink and then transferring the ink to the paper to make the print. These are the re-inkers that I used for this project. If I try this again I might see how using acrylic paint from tubes works-maybe if I use a thicker medium I would get a stronger print?
