Hello all! It's been a fun week at the studio with the printmaking camp in progress. Looking at all the beautiful prints
in the gallery has been inspiring to the students as well as thinking up their own ideas!
One of the most free form styles of printmaking - glue prints - something we enjoyed making yesterday. I thought I would share a little mini tutorial with you on this fun process.
First get out the white liquid glue and a piece of cardboard a little or a lot smaller than your paper.
Enjoy the flow of the glue and don't worry about any real details.
Let it dry overnight
In the morning, using a brayer, spread ink over the dried glue
Place your paper on top of the inked glue and cardboard
Rub like mad with your fingertips!
Pull off the paper and admire your work.
Add color or collage pieces if you like
Of course you can do so much more printing with the glue
"plate" ... I will let you think up some on your own - let me know what you come up with!
