I love their colour and movement. Using the silk screen to monoprint is very expressive process where the initial image is created without first drawing or tracing.
Today I used some mini-silk screens to try water soluble crayons using this screen monoprinting process. I drew on the screen using the crayons, then experimented with Print Paste as well as Gloss Gel Medium. The results were interesting, and it's a very quick spontaneous process - just what I love about monoprinting. Its definitely a technique that I would be able to take travelling with me.
