Prints Galore offers a wide variety of printing techniques and practical, beautiful projects that don't require a press or any degree of expertise. In addition to stamping and stencilling, various relief methods of printmaking, including lino, texture plate and collagraph, the author has included four different types of screen printing and sun and cyanotype print projects as well as how to use rust and plant materials for 'eco' type printing. Transfer methods and altered art prints offer a different take on conventional approaches to this easily accessible art form. But by far the most exciting, and largest section of the book is devoted to monotype prints and monoprinting with the focus on gel printing. Angie Franke uses her gelatine based printing pads (you'll get the recipe) and the commercial Gelli Plate - as well as a fascinating venture into clay bed printing - to explore monoprint methods in many different ways, drawing on other processes in the book to build fascinating results of richly combined layers of colour with stamp, stencil, mask and texture plate tools. Easy to follow instructions with stylish photographs
will inspire anyone to give printmaking a go!
