I LOVE MONOTYPES HOLY COW THEY ARE SO FUN TO DO.
So what we did was used the brayer to lay down ink and then we subtracted the ink from the plexi-glass to shape our faces and show the light versus dark places on the face.
Then we ran the plexi-glass through the printmaker (with paper on top, obviously) and got our image printed onto paper woo hoo!
Like I said, I loved this activity. I had maybe 1 or 2 stand-alone pieces, but the others that are pictured here are cut-and-collaged together from other pieces. I don't have pictures of ALL of my prints, sadly, so I'll need to take pictures of those.
We had been doing drawings of our faces/upper body from small mirrors which we were going to go over with watercolor paint, but deer god am I AWFUL with watercolor. I cannot control the carnal rage that is the tiger of watercolor paint! But I really liked my initial sketch of myself before we put the paint on it.
I have not been updating my blog as diligently as I would like to. u__u So here are some posts of what we've done since, what, September??? It's November already, almost December!!
So since the cut-and-collage thing, we've done a full figure, monotypes, water color selfies, monotype mixed media stuff... Yeah we've done a lot haha and I've missed a lot of school....
So okay I will post some pictures of stuff I've been doing. They're iPhone photos from distances for some of them though, and for that I apologize. Also this is not ALL we've done. I just need to take more pictures of my work.
