Other Mark Making techniques:

Paint on Canvas:

Jackson Pollock was an art painter who is known for his mark making technique of splashing paints onto canvases to create abstract artwork to express his emotions. He splashes the canvases with strokes of different thickness and colours to convey his ideas and emotions.

Vomit dyed milk on Canvas: 

Millie Brown is a female artist who stepped up from the traditional art technique and invented her own unique style of mark-making. Instead of splashing paints like Jackson Pollock, Millie Brown drinks dyed milk and regurgitates out the milk onto the canvas creating abstract patterns. She VOMITS out the milk!!!! YUCKS!!!


Mono Printing:

Mono printing is a process whereby inks and patterns are pressed onto a paper. Any materials can be used with different coloured inks to create interesting and intricate designs.


During my hall camp, my seniors used henna and wrote words on my arm. I had a sunburn and became tanned and found that the words from the henna are now etched on my skin. Hence I got an idea and thought of the weirdest idea of mark-making which is tanning. While Sun bathing, individuals can cover their bodies with patterns to create the art. I call it the sunburn art.

Mark-making has no right or wrongs, it is all about expressing yourself, your thoughts and emotions.
