Monoprinting with Scrim
Monoprinting is a lovely technique that allows printmakers to be spontaneous, painterly and experimental. This simple monoprint project produces beautiful delicate prints using a piece of scrim and an etching press.

Botanical Collage — Hannah Klaus Hunter Arts
Hunter still loves to collect leaves, which she brings into the studio, to capture the shape, texture and linear qualities of various leaves onto paper. She uses a monoprint process to do this, rolling out a layer of acrylic paint on top of a gelatin-based plate, and then placing leaves on top. After the paper is placed on top, a brayer is used to press the paint onto it. Some prints are layers of four to five individual print runs
Isaksen’s intricate artworks are created through an equally intricate process. Using items from her garden, Isaksen creates monoprints on fiber paper, which are layered with an acrylic medium, leaving only what has been printed visible. Each artwork consists of numerous layers of monoprints, creating one cohesive composition full of color and depth. -I print them all, using yarns, fabric, seeds, pressed plants and other organic material.
