Lino monoprints, variations on a theme, Vivien Blackburn
These aren't simply linoprints now as they are all unique - I've used monoprinting techniques with them, 'inking' them up with oil paint and working into them with coloured pencils and oil pastel. So I'm calling them lino monoprints as the best description I can come up with. I've included one straight, rolled lino print to show how it prints with lino ink applied with a roller in the traditional way.
- Monoprints are unique prints that contain a repeatable element - like the linocut in these - but with utterly different results due to colour and inking up differences and work done after printing.
- Monotypes are absolute one-offs with no repeatable element.
Working with my lino prints this way suits my way of thinking better than the clean cut lino print that's included in the line up above.
If anyone is interested in owning one, I'm going to put them in my Etsy shop
I haven't sussed out the necessary alterations to my paypal account and buy button stuff yet to do anything here! I fell at the first hurdle when trying to change my paypal account to enable a buy button - sigh - I wish I was better at this stuff! I'll work on it though.
