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.
The pages below demonstrate printed patterns, please click on images for a close up and added comments

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.

Monoprint samples, experiments with various ‘tools’ acrylic paint spread over glass and pattern made with ‘tool’, paper laid over top and roller used to compress paper and develop print. Paper peeled off to reveal print. Absolutely wonderful! Really love this.
