MonoPrint Process

first I took a picture

then I painted a positive with india ink and translucent paper.

then I had a positive

I shot a screen with that positive, which transfered the image on the positive to the screen.

Then I applied water-soluble crayons to the screen.

oooh look a blurry close-up.

Then I spread transperent base (think of screen printing ink with out color) on the image

then I forced the water soluable crayon though the screen on to a piece of paper, which looked something like this;

I printed the second pull on gessoed wood

and after all this action this is what my poor screen looks like. I hope it is worth it all...
