This workshop will demonstrate the use of yupo paper and acrylic glazing liquid to create acrylic mono-prints without the need of a press. Participants should be able to make three prints from each inking plus the original yupo plate which may then be treated with mixed media—craypas, papers, stamps, etc.—limited only by one’s imagination. Participants can expect to get three prints from each plate and perhaps produce some creative serial pieces. The workshop should produce six to eight works.
A list of supplies is provided at registration. Participants can bring their own supplies, or supplies can be furnished for an additional fee.
