Monoprints on Plexiglass
Monoprints are fun to make since they always yield some unexpected results. I used plexiglass for my printing plate, but a sheet of acetate or a piece of glass from a picture frame work just as well. Simply roll water-based printing ink onto the plexi with a brayer. I used the eraser end of a pencil to draw the marks directly into the ink. Then I pressed a sheet of paper on top of the drawing to make my print. With the remaining ink on the plate I made a fainter print. You can also layer prints on top of each other.
