Silkscreen Monotype

by on Dec.15, 2011, under Printmaking

Finished off a Silk Screen Monotype. I’ve been experimenting with the monotype because I haven’t done it before and like its possibilities. I’ve done Silkscreens (Serigraphy) where you make editions but didn’t even consider this other printmaking approach. What I like is the ability to do layering. If your concept doesn’t come out on your first print, you can always do more tweeking and print over the first attempt. This print, “Millicoma Wetlands 3” was done with 4-5 printings. The last layer was a thin, transparent layer of the water – it needed to be over the reflections. Oh, one clue – make sure you register the paper so you can line up with no trouble if needed to add layers.

“Millicoma Wetlands 3” - Silk Screen Monotype - 11.8x8.5 in.
