Monoprinting Without The Press

27 Apr

 

I love Art Printing and I’m excited to share some of my techniques at a demonstration on monoprinting at the next CNY Art Guild meeting in May.  If you’re in the Syracuse, New York area, feel free to join me for this Free event on Thursday, May 10th.  I’ll be demonstrating how to create and use your own mask and stencils and even how to do a transfer like the ones you see above.

The meeting is at 7:00 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church in Baldwinsville and the supply list is below.  Hope you can attend!

Join Katie Turner at the CNYAG meeting on Thursday, May 10 at 7:00 p.m. for a demonstration in Monoprinting.  She will be showing us several techniques using stencils, masks and the Gelli plate.  She will show us a unique way of creating your own homemade stencil and mask and show you how to create beautiful background papers that can be used with collaging or in other techniques.

If you’d like to participate please bring the following:

  1. paper to print with (no heavier than 90-96 lbs)
  2. bottles of acrylic paint
  3. stencils (if you have them)
  4. Old magazine with images you prefer (ie. Fashion magazine, etc.)
  5. Packing Tape
  6. Scissors
  7. Gelli-plate (if you own one)
  8. Brayer/roller (if you own one)

NOTE:  If you don’t want to get your hands or clothing painted, please bring gloves and dress appropriately as this can get messy.

For those who don’t own these supplies, Katie will have a limited amount of her own supplies to share with you, if you’d like to try this technique.
