I did get to play a little with my acrylic blocks but have been struggling to get decent photos. Decided to blog them anyway, despite the fact that the variations in shade and colour are just not showing up – grrr!
No problems with this one because it’s just black and white.
I’ve done more but I’ll save them for another time. I did one on my trusty old large Hero Arts shadow stamp and I quite like that one. Takes me back to when we had the little Stamp Club in the shop. We did quite a lot of mono stamping then – probably around 5 or 6 years ago - and it was so much fun.
Chalk inks also work really well. Haven’t done any samples but that’s what we used years ago, when they first appeared on the market.
It’s not my technique – it’s a standard printing technique which has been used for eons but it’s great for experimenting with. Just wish I had more time to play. Any more questions, please do ask.
For more information on monoprinting the printer’s and artist’s way, see here.
The ice has almost melted and the sun is shining, so I may just venture out for a bit of fresh air. No snow here, though. Hope you’re all staying warm x
