Monoprint - LEOPARD by dino-wolf Monoprint - LEOPARD by dino-wolf
A leopard drew on the 20th of October!

This one is a monoprint. You need to paint your table with water-soluble paint, make sure the colour is spread out evenly. Then, cover a paper on it and draw on it with different pressure. Finally, flip it over, and you will see your monoprint!

Any comment for this?

You mean my icon??? Thank you for loving it anyway~

I just randomly draw it actually...... really!

Um... I am not good at drafting using Photoshop directly. So, actually, my icon and all my other works are mostly sketched out first, and scanned, then re-drawn in Photoshop, and painted. That's why it takes me soooooo long to complete one.

For the icon, I just.... painted it based on the mouth of mine! Cuz my teeth really look like that. 

Just observe more and practice more~

mmm, it seems to be a good method to obtain a graphite drawing look, the bad thing is that you can stain with ink or paint your paper. You can obtain a similar effect with a copper plate, using a technique called "soft ground".  you know, i make a lot of printmaking but i never do monoprints or monotypes, so i have two (silly) questions, did you use water-soluble paint or ink? and ¿you need to damp the paper for this kind of work?

thx a lot

I prefer to use water-soluble paint instead of ink or acrylic. Of course, when using water-soluble paint, you should not mix it with any water, or else you would never be able to obtain such effects. Besides, ink and acrylic are quite easy to dry up. So, if you do your work slowly and the ink/ acrylic dried up, your paper might be damaged! One more thing is that it is much easier to clean up the mess on your table if you use water-soluble paint.

When doing monoprint/monotype, you should never damp the paper, as that will not produce such effect (actually, you may try it out if you want the colour to spread out like clouds, but I haven't tried it out yet). Just use a roller to add a thin layer of water-soluble paint on the table/board, make sure the colour is spread out and smooth. Then, just cover a piece of paper on top (you should not use paper that is too soft or else it will be all stained!), and start drawing on it. When you draw on the paper, the place you add in pressure will be stained at the other side. Finally, if you would like to produce some more effects or highlights some areas, then just use your hand to give a bit of pressure on it. Still, the first paper might not be good because there is too much ink on the table. So, make sure the first one is just for experiment. This Leopard was the third piece I made, so I think you can guess how messy the first two were. XP

Thank you for commenting. Hope these can help you.

I love this! I'm doing mono printing at college and can't get it right, the background is always messy xD your work is much better :)

Thx so much!

If the colour is too thick, the background will usually turn messy. It will be better if you let it dry for a while first. Or don't add any more colour after the first print.
Er.... It might also because of the paper you are using. Some papers are much softer (or thinner), they will easily collapse onto the paint and become messy.
(my first print is always the worst because of the thickness of the colour i add. Plus, I prefer to colour the table for printing, so that the colour can be used for 3 or 4 times.)

Hope these can help you.

Awh thanks for the reply (:
I did three last lesson and they all came out with too much mess on the background but it did get better but I got bored by then haha. I'll probably try again and steal the ink after my friends used it a few times.

this
is
not
a
joke!
carry
on
reading!
or
you
will
die,
even
if
you
only
looked
at
the
word
warning!


ONCE
THERE
WAS
A
LITTLE
GIRL
CALLED
CLARISSA,
SHE
WAS
10
YEARS
OLD
AND
SHE
LIVED
IN
A
MENTAL
HOSPITAL,
BEACUSE
SHE
KILLED
HER
MUM
AND
DAD.








SHE
GOT
SO
BAD
SHE
STARTED
TO
KILL
ALL
THE
STAFF
IN
THE
HOSPITAL
SO
THE
GOVERMENT
DECIDED
THAT
THE
BEST
IDEA
WAS
TO
GET
RID
OF
HER
SO
THEY
SET
UP
A
SPECIAL
ROOM
TO
KILL
HER,
AS
HUMANE
AS
POSSIBLE
BUT
IT
WENT
RONG
THE
MACHINE
THEY
WERE
USEING
WENT
WRONG.








AND
SHE
WAS
SAT
THERE
IN
AGONY
FOR
HOURS
UNTILL
SHE
FINALLY
DIED.








NOW
EVERY
WEEK
ON
THE
DAY
OF
HER
DEATH
SHE
RETURNS
TO THE
PERSON
THAT
READS
THIS
LETTER,
ON
A
MONDAY
NIGHT
AT
12:00
SHE
KREEPS
INTO
YOUR
ROOM
AND
KILLS
YOU,
BUT
SLOWLY
AND
PAINFULLY
SLOWLY
CUTTING
DIFFRENT
PARTS
OF
UR
BODY
THEN
WATCHES
YOU
BLEED
TO
DEATH
IF
YOU
DONT
SEND
THIS
TO
20
PEOPLE
BY
MIDNIGHT
SHELL
BE
COMEING
TO KILL
YOU!
SEND
IT
SO
SHE
HAS
ANOTHER
LOAD
OF
PEOPLE
TO
GET
AND
FORGETS
ABOUT
YOU
DONT
BELVE ME
HEY?

EXAMPLE
1:
JENNY
DIDNT BELIVE THIS AND DELETED IT WITHOUT EVEN READING THE WHOLE THING! A FEW DAYS LATER ON THE MONDAY NIGHT SHE WAS WOKEN UP BYE LOUDE FOOTSTEPS AND HEAVY BREETHING THERE WAS CLARISSA STANDING THERE WITH A HUGE KNIFE AND WELL JENNY IS HISTORY NOW.









EXAMPLE
2:
TOM
ONLY SENT IT TO 5 PEOPLE CUZ HE THOUGHT HED BE SAFE AND IT WAS PROBLY JUST A JOKE BUT OH HOW RONG WAS HE! HE DIED THE NEXT NIGHT ON MONDAY AND ILL TELL YA NOW IT WASNT PRETTY(JUST CUZ HE SENT FIVE HE DIDNT COMPLETE THE TASK)

EXAMPLE
3:
JOEANNA
SENT IT TO 19 PEOPLE SHE THOUGHT IT WAS CLOSE ENOUGH AND WOULD DO BUT SHE WAS WRONG SHE DIED THAT NIGHT ON A MONDAY AND ONCE AGAIN IT WASNT
