In this video we will try out the monotype printing technique using washable markers.
Washable (water based) markers
- Using markers, draw your design onto the plastic baggie. The baggie will be used as a printing plate. Try to fill the printing plate with color.
- Next, we will prepare the paper for printing. Use the spray bottle to dampen the paper. You want the paper to be evenly wet, but without puddles.
- Printing! To make a print you will place the paper on top of the printing plate. Next, apply pressure all over the paper.
- Remove the paper to reveal your print!
*Optional step: once the paper is dry, use markers to draw on top of the print to add more detail.
The fun thing about using a printing plate is that it can be cleaned and used again and again!
