Mixed Media has recaptured my heart this year, with stencils, illustration, medium and above all color! The freedom it gives me to create texture and colors gives me the greatest satisfaction. Today’s tutorial and project was a true experience. I will be sharing with you how to monoprint a background with paint, Deco Foil and other textures.
I have a gelli plate that had not seen the light of day in ages and I decided to take it out to try out some monoprinting (which is a tremendously addictive process). The idea of monoprinting with foil had been wandering in my head for at least almost 2 years but of course monoprinting directly with Deco Foil or Deco Foil Mediums would most likely ruin the gelli plate… So I came up with a trick that allowed me to add that foil monoprinted look easily!
