PRINTMAKING {Sharing My Art}








Above is most of the artwork I have created in printmaking. I think that this is the first time I am sharing my own artwork on my blog; that's exciting! I took printmaking for two terms and absolutely loved every moment of it. It's a unique form of art considering that it is much more about the process of the plate that you eventually will ink and run through a press. The presses are the kinds that were used for printing the newspapers and even Bibles. This art class fascinated me. 

The first two prints are relief prints. I created a chipboard that contained different textures such as glue, paper, plastic, and foil patterns then rolled ink over the board and ran it through the press. Next three prints are monotypes I made. These prints were made by rolling ink onto a plastic board then wiping away and adding ink to the plates. The last five are all etchings. These copper plates took the longest amount of time to print. Prepping the plate with hard ground, then scratching the hard ground, putting it into acid, then re-working lines. Lot's of work to make these plates but they were definitely worth it. (I know a lot of this doesn't make sense but it's for me to read later when I forget)

I would for sure take this class again. It's so much fun. A little frustrating at times but overall such a wonderful break from classes that have no creative aspect to them.
