screen monoprinting 01 Helen Terry The way the print blurs the boundary between dyeing, screen printing and embroidery I find is interesting as they take on a more ambiguous role rather than the simple reproduction of an image, they begin to devalue the industrial nature of screen printing. These prints looks like they have been painted onto wet paper rather than using a process known for replication.
Linda Germain - The fuzzy line is created with a Trace Monoprint. I used white card stock and Daniel Smith water soluble block printing ink. It is not on the glycerin plate. You roll out a thin layer of ink on a palette, and then place the print paper on top of the ink and draw on the back of the print paper. So you need to use ink that does not dry too fast. The black line on this one is the trace mono print technique.
