Here are a couple of Mono types with Chine` Collage` that I learned how to do in the Ron Prokrasso Class I took last week.
Very interesting technique and new way (for me) to put images and paint to paper.
I learned how to lay water compatible Akua intaglio inks onto an acrylic plate and run through a press with added collage pieces within the same printing process.
Unfortunately, now I want a press. Always something new out there to lust after.
These two images were done from the same original plate. The colors are much lighter after the first run through the press so then you take that "ghost " ink and rework it with more ink into another print.
I have tried for a long time to get some good photos of crows but have only finally come up with these two images and one other that I also used in another print, on my phone camera. Go Figure! Had to photo shop them just a bit and then sent them to my friend who printed them onto mulberry paper for me. The tree image I printed myself on rice paper which crinkled up in my printer, thus the blank streaks which absolutely made the image work for me. Talk about your happy accidents; Or as Pokrasso calls them "gifts". Either way, works for me!
