Working Like The Clappers

30 Oct

Did a really long session at Swansea Print Workshop as there’s nothing like a deadline to make you work like the clappers. I’m working on two full-colour monotypes at the moment. Each print has three separate layers overlaid. The first is Process Yellow, then Process Red and finally Process Blue. Today I managed to do the yellow and red layers. Back tomorrow to do the final one.

This process results in one full colour print and one ‘ghost’ which is made by putting the plate through the press again with a second piece of paper which mops up the final traces of ink.

Tomorrow, the final layer which will either pull the whole thing together or reduce me to tears. I love printmaking – living on the edge!
