Screenprinted Watercolor Monotypes
Nike screenprinted watercolor monotype
The screened watercolor monotype process begins by painting or drawing an image onto a clean silk screen with water-soluble materials such as watercolors or water soluble crayons. Clear transparent base is flooded across the screen several times to rewet the dried pigments. The screen is lowered and a squeegee is used to force the watercolor from the screen and onto a sheet of paper placed beneath.*
The result will always be different from the image created on the screen. It’s that element of surprise which I find so exciting.
* The prints in this collection were created using waterbased materials. For more info on how to use watercolors to create screenprinted monotypes sign up for my blog where this process will be explored in an upcoming photo and text tutorial.
