We tried a variety of monoprinting techniques, which included painting on the plate surface (which yielded THIS mess!!!);
Then I tried braying the ink on the plate and "scoring" squiggles into it. I kind of liked how this one turned out.
The one I liked the best was this next technique. I brayed the ink on the plate and laid a stem of dried flowers on top. Then placed my paper on top of that and sent it through the press. The result was this image AND a very cool emboss of the dried flower stem!
