Ghost - Alicia Tormey - Monotype - 2009
The print above is a ghost image left on the plate after the first pass through the press. I find these residual images so much more interesting than the first pass images. This technique offers some wonderful layering possibilities. I am experimenting with incorporating the printed images into my encaustic work. This piece titled Summer Dance is my first attempt at mixing the monotypes with encaustic. I’ll post more results as the work emerges.
