Monoprinting when i didnt have any reference artists in mind. Just doing whatever that came to mind.
This was very interesting as this print is actually created by wiping the glass table with ink on it. As I realised that it actually creates interesting visual texture, i decided to swirl it to create a sense of direction/movement
With the link on the table(again) i decided to dilute it with water at certain areas and added some paint. I also used the spray bottle(sprayed on table) before gently pressing my paper on top
Another attempt at table wiping, those strong lines at the end are actually…… (fingers)
This idea was actually created by twisting and twirling kitchen towels and pressing them using the machine (inspired by Lipeng’s prints). I really like the mini textured lines that was printed too. And of course, i did not throw the kitchen towels away! They are valuable and they are printed with ink too!
Masking tape creates great block out~ and very clear negative spaces
reprinting of the same tissues?paper?
I used the roller and pressed some ink on one side of the paper. Was thinking of trying out Rorschach Technique, folded the paper into half and this was what it created. It didnt have the same value because the ink has already been half dried? I suppose i will need a wet ink to create that
usually we will only think of using pencil with brass rubbing techinique, however i had this checkered cloth, and was wondering if it will work with ink too? And indeed it did!
This was probably done with tea leaves~
I was just drawing and splashing ink on the plate itself directly
The papers used here came really useful during my creation of lines XD
SPLATTER!! and letting ink drip. One of the more natural way to see how ink flows~ It kinda look like a giraffe with a tree isnt it ww
FUMAGE ON PAPER TOWEL! it was easier to get marks on here..maybe because its thinner? however it is easier to “brown” the surface too
FUMAGEEE on drawing paper. I really like doing this ^^
Fumage on chinese rice paper. Due to the super thin paper, it got burnt easily
Strings and ink. look at those furry ends. i love them
Reprint with clearer details
The patterns created by this fern is really unique <3
They look like they are drawn by a almost dried flat tip marker
double print on one surface~loved that “shadow”/depth effect created with each tape
This was another one created with spraying and “cleaning” the table
Rolling the roller multiple times on different paper creates a different texture
This is a gallery of automated techniques and monoprints that i did earlier! As they are all in A3 size, i wont be able to put much of the original prints in my sketchbook and it would be a waste to not document these.
