Last week, I learned some printmaking techniques. I explored many diverse ways of making prints, all that were filled with great experiences. The first print I posted (titled “art”) would be considered a print I enjoyed making the most. This was the collagraph technique that required gluing pieces onto a cardboard, paining, and pressing them through a printing press. I enjoyed creating textures and waiting to see how those textures showed through the paints and onto a paper. The print that I think was a success was the monoprint titled “abstract” . The two prints i pulled had great color and textures that would have only worked with this technique. I found that using your hand is more useful than the baren. It allows you to feel textures and how well the paint and paper have stuck. I started off with creating a background with ink on a bench hook and then creating textures with several tools to create a print with 2 editions. I would love to redo the screen printing technique, mainly because I was in such a rush during the process. If I had just a little more time I would have loved to create another stencil and used tape to layer color and create a more interesting design.
