Continuing on my monoprinting series. This is my first attempt on my own, with no guidance. Pretty rough, wasn’t happy with the results from that day. This print I left too much ink on the plate, so it printed really dark and black.
This is a second attempt at the same image, and the ghost print. The nice thing about scratching the drawing into the plate is the template is still there, so you can re-ink the plate again and again, without having to start completely from scratch. You still have to re-paint the image each time.
After printing that day, I had to remind myself that I am learning, and not every print is going to look amazing. I haven’t learned a new printmaking process in a while, so I have to remember what it’s like to be a student, and that it is frustrating sometimes.
