Prepping for a Monoprinting Lesson.
We have roughly 24 students per group so most jobs I do are x 24. For this lesson the students needed 2 sheets of A4 each, one sheet of brown parcel paper and one cartridge paper. This is my work desk with piles of ripped tissue paper in various colours ready to stick down to add a splash of colour to black monoprints.
Next job is to stick down 2 or 3 different colours per sheet with a slight overlap, when the tissue paper overlaps it create new colours. Pritt-Stick is my glue of choice for this after trying many types it's the quickest and the least messy.
I always finish off a job like this by wrapping a strip of paper around it and writing on the front. There are 3 reasons for this – it keeps the paper together until it's needed, it helps me and the teacher remember what it was for (I often do these jobs way in advance) and it also stops other teachers taking it and then you have to do the job again!
