After spending a week at Geelong teaching monoprinting, I was determined to not pack away my inks but set up my print studio and have some fun with my little Xcut Xpress machine.
I dug out my favourite wren stencils and got to work....
|Inked plate and objects ready to print on the |
bed of my Xcut machine.
|Revealing the print after printing.|
I used tinted Stonehenge, dampened and torn to size to
print as bleed prints.
|My ink stations - printing on my own means|
I need to chose my colours carefully as I only put
out three colours. Less to clean up at the end of the day.
|A feather print in progress, just for something different!|
|One of the successful prints, but not every print works.|
I used my favourite Kangaroo Grass in this series,
I love its feathering appearance.
|Another of my favourite wrens. The pattern at the|
bottom was from some mesh that was
gifted to me - a real treasure!
|I had to trace around the outline of this wren|
after the print was dry to make him
stand out a bit more.
