How do you make mono prints?
There are multiple ways you can create monoprint art. We will take you through two simple ways below:
Using gel printing plates:
Lay out your gel printing plate on a table and cover it with a thin layer of paint (acrylic paint is ideal)
You can use a paint roller to evenly distribute the paint over the gel plate
Use clay tools or a cotton bud to create designs in the paint
Press the paper down on top of the printmaking plate
Peel back the paper and voila you have created an awesome monoprint!
Using a tabletop & printmaking roller:
Place a piece of paper on a table and tape it in place with masking tape
Squeeze the ink onto your surface and use the roller to evenly roll it out
Once the ink has been rolled out, designs can be drawn into the ink using clay tools
Let the print dry at room temperature
Remove the tape and enjoy your new print!
