Monoprinting without a Press with Bill Brookover
June 11, 2016
Using non-toxic water-based inks, you’ll learn monoprinting without a press. Monoprints are the painterly approach to printmaking that combines the spontaneity of painting and drawing with the process of printmaking. You’ll learn to add textures to drawings and to paint directly on the printing plate using Akua Liquid Pigment inks. You’ll learn to mix colors and to use inks and additives to build up layers of transparent and opaque color.
