Bear monoprint











I have been experimenting with direct draw monoprinting. This is a great technique for producing one-off printed images using very little equipment. A mirror, water soluble block printing ink, a roller, paper and a pencil to be precise.

I had a look on the internet and can’t find a really good visual link to put here (although there are hundreds that tell you how to do it), so if you would like me to make a tutorial, let me know.

I am thinking about making some monoprint greetings cards and drawings for my little shop. What do you think?

My ambitious clothes sewing project is coming along nicely and should be finished for the weekend. Don’t get too excited though- Tony says it looks ‘interesting’…

    If that’s the effect you get, I really need to know how to do it. Tutorial gratefully received!

    I like this soft monotone look and think cards could be a good ‘bread and butter’ line, when we had a retail store we sold cards by the dozen, they were a great add on sale.

    Yes, I’d appreciate a tutorial too. I’d love to have a go again at monoprinting (vaguely remember doing it in art class, a long, long time ago). One of the many things I love about blogs, is the generosity of people to share tutorials. Also, love your teddy design and think he would make beautiful cards.

    I have been looking for someone who does this kind of monoprinting as I can’t find the inks anywhere that I used to use at college.
    What type of inks do you use?
    Thanks and I love the teddy image
