Have you ever wanted to try your hand at printmaking but been intimidated by the equipment that might be needed?
That’s where monoprinting — making a one-off print—with either a Gelli or an acrylic plate comes in.
Monoprinting is a form of printmaking that allows you to create unique, free-form printed images every time. This allows you to produce abstract compositions, more complex details and traced contour images. Monoprinting is a quick process and gets you results much more quickly than other printmaking techniques.
Gelli printing plates are a soft, reusable plate for transferring your work to paper with hand pressure. They are a very easy and mess-free way of making monoprints, and work especially well with Golden OPEN Acrylic ink.
