Chapter 5 Make patterned papers

I’ve made a series of patterned papers using  printing ink [Daler Block Printing Colour] and bleach used with Quink Ink. These were applied with various ‘tools or applicators'’ for printing  including strips of cardboard, corrugated cardboard, cotton bud, polystyrene,  pen lids, dental floss and cocktail sticks.

These two pages above  contain experiments on paper for starters to try out various applicators for printing and mark making.

I printed this with corrugated card and left over cold water dye from chapter 6 – one of my favourites – I love the rhythm and varying intensity of tone.
