Horsehead Monoprint


Badge Awards


This is my first experiment with a silkscreening technique that uses water-soluble pastel crayon drawn directly on the screen. S'kinda neat. You end up with 3-5 prints, all of them slightly different depending on the liquidity of the ink. Then you go back and draw into them with colored pencil, resulting in a set of hand-tinted monoprints.

I managed to pull four off this, not bad for a first try! They're all pretty similiar--some are darker, some are lighter, this is a pretty mid-range one. It's about 4 x 4 or thereabouts.

Fun stuff! Can't wait to try it again...

Reminds me of a knight, in chess. So of course I love it. :)
