Printing Texture

Using a rubber brayer or a sponge roller (Dollar Store) to apply paint to textures and then printing them on paper is a great, open-ended activity. You'd probably be surprised at how many textures you can find by looking around the house. Yes, that's an unused fly swatter. I used acrylic paint, but printmaking ink or even thick tempera paint can work quite well. The results can be framed or used as gift wrap and there is plenty of room for experimentation and absolutely no room for "mistakes".
