A veil is a great way to reduce previously printed imagery. Similar to using white paint in a painting, a veil can be used in printmaking with great flexibility to soften or eliminate information.

There are a number of ways to use textures in a monotype composition. This demo will show you the advantages to using one method rather than another.

This 2 hour interactive demo includes questions from participants followed by optional 30 minute individualized Confer and Critique Add-On sessions that may be purchased in advance below or at checkout. Additional hour long Confer ‘n Critique sessions may be scheduled by appointment. Please see the recommended supply list below.

For a full hands-on engagement you will need the following:

  • A monotype work station complete with a palette, Akua inks and solvents, monotype plates, brayers and other accessories. See the complete materials list.
  • A monotype work in progress- preferably one that has more information than desired and has had a day or two to dry
  • A FRESH jar of Akua Opaque white (older jars of Opaque White tend to be too stiff). Titanium White will work as well.
  • A sharpie marker
  • Some Q- tips
  • Newsprint
  • Various textured items for example, corrugated cardboard, textured fabric, leaves, a doily, wallpaper with raised patterns, string, etc.
  • A sheet or two of Arches 88 paper
  • A press (preferred) or hand printing station
