Monotype Variations with Drypoint Plates – video series

with Joyce Silverstone

Play and improvise in a variety of monotype techniques with the addition of some repeatable images on incised Petg drypoint plates. Within these four videos, we’ll explore using an at-home registration system for making transfer drawings, and use these prints as our jumping off point to explore a variety of mark making possibilities with Petg plates. We will turn our attention to creating drypoint prints with monotype additions.
