Monoprints

Materials:

  • 9x12 drawing paper, folded in half

  • old brushes or popcicle sticks
  • stencil-viewfinder 4.25x4.25

  • scissors, masking tape

Steps

Put some paint (thick "blobs") onto one half of the drawing paper.

You can move it around with a popcicle stick. Don't mix!

Contrasting colors work great together.

Fold the paper and rub it to move the paint to fill the gaps

Open it up.

Let it dry for a few hours (to make sure it is completely dry).

Place the viewfinder over the painting.

Trace the areas thet you like.

Cut them out.
Mat.
