MONO PRINTS

Various Prices

Mono prints are known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques.  The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike. The beauty of this medium is also in its spontaneity and its combination of printmaking, painting and drawing media. The approaches are many and the only limitation is your imagination.

A plastic plate is inked-up by means of a roller, the image is produced by selectively wiping away the ink with rags, brushes, scrapers etc. Paper is laid directly over the plate. The print can be taken by either running it through a press or by hand rubbing/burnishing the back of the sheet of paper.  A second run through the press to use up the remaining ink on the plate can produce an interesting image, called a “ghost print”.

I enjoy pushing the boundaries of printmaking by using a technique called chine-colle' - this method requires the use of lightweight papers, such as Japanese rice paper. The image is printed onto the various paper which is glued on the more durable paper.  Currently I am experimenting with different types of papers, tea bags & sewing/stitching etc.  Mono prints are quick to produce and you end up with a unique print.
