Monotypes with Betsy

My friend, Betsy Adams wanted to try a monotype printmaking technique she recently read about. It involves painting the art on a piece of plexiglass, then transfering it to paper using a press.

I don’t have any experience with this technique, but thought it would be fun, so we met at the Bluegrass Art Center in Old Washington, and spent the day making monotypes.

I have a painting background, so this was an exciting new way for me to combine my love of painting and printmaking.

My neighbor, Claudia Moose, stopped by and made one too!

I love living in a community filled with artists. If you want a good reason to visit, I am having an open house with a FREE garden themed printmaking activity at my house this Saturday May 11 from 12-3pm as part of the Garden Day Celebration in Old Washington.

  1. So sorry I missed this. I really wanted to be there and learn this new fun printing technique. Love the videos you all made, but would love a closer look at your finished art works. Do you think this is a technique you would try again?
