Monoprinting with nature

The (communal) print studio is currently concentrating on monoprinting and whilst there is some latitude to deviate from this it can become a problem with multiple people wanting the presses set at different pressures.  So with that in mind I stuck to the designated technique and had a bit of fun playing with dried plant material and fabric trim.

Oil based inks – sepia, yellow ochre, olive green ( diarylide yellow & black), 250gsm Hahnemuhle paper.

      I’m very happy with these, Helen. I’ve tried another few with some non-traditional colours and I’ll post these shortly. They give a very different feel and I’m still trying to decide if I like them or not.
