The Beauty of Ghost Prints in Monotype
Here’s a Tip
Trim a sheet of mat board the same size as the drafting film and slide it under your monotype. It helps to raise the surface of the printable pigments a little higher than the press bed. This way, you don’t have to crank the pressure of the press roller down quite so hard against the entire press bed – since the drafting film is no thicker than regular printing paper. That little bit of lift also results in a lovely plate impression in your soaked and blotted paper when you pull the print.
Jump in – the Water is Fine!
The creation of that perfect thing we recognize as art, is given to all too few of us. When it happens, it transcends time, and is rightly included or added to the treasures that have stirred the imagination of past centuries. But art is a kind of tyrant. It came to me dressed up in wanderlust.
~Gustave Baumann (1881-1971)
