Flute Player Monoprintt by Debra Petit Pavey.
Monoprint on paper.
Framed under the glass.
23 cm x 28 cm.
This work was created using a gel plate and the traditional monoprint technique. Debra painted her image directly onto the gel plate. She then added decorative elements using stamps, reminiscent of Indian decorative motifs.
The image was then printed only once as when the paper is placed over the painted plate and burnished, as it is slowly removed, all the paint on the plate is transferred to the paper and the monoprint is created.
Gel plate printing is a monoprint process. A soft plate is made from gelatin and glycerin. The mixture sets and then paints/inks can be rolled out across the plate. Textures can be added to the rolled ink. Masks, stamps and stencils can also be used. Interesting effects can be achieved by layering several prints over the top of each other. Once inked, the print paper is placed on top of the gel plate, pressure applied using your hands or a baren and as the paper is removed all the paint/ink is transferred to the surface of the paper.
