Cleaning Up

Cleaning Up. I’ve been doing some experimental printmaking onto some donated vintage paper the past few days, inspired by the random creative exercises of The Surrealists in the early 20th century. When I was cleaning up after the first day, where I used yellow ink (Caligo Safewash), I rolled my roller onto a large piece of paper to get the excess ink off. The next day, when I used red ink, I ripped a few strips of newspaper and put them onto the paper before I rolled the excess ink onto it. And finally, I did the same when I was cleaning the blue roller.

I really like it. I get my roller clean enough to wash AND I have some nice paper to work on. I think I’ll draw onto it with something dark, maybe black conté crayon or black oil bar, or maybe I’ll scan it into my Samsung Galaxy Tablet first and experiment before committing myself to paper.
