I created this print by first inking a plexiglas plate with black ink, and then creatively arranging miniature Japanese maple leaves on top of the inked surface. Next, I cranked the plate through my etching press with a piece of paper on top, not as much as to create a print from the ink peaking through the leaves, but to create impressions of the leaves into the inked plate.
From there, I used tweezers to carefully remove all the leaves and small stems from the inked plate. Next I used both paintbrushes, rolled up paper towel corners and mat board corners to creatively remove ink from the plate. The single step of painstakingly removing ink from the plate took about 6 hours to do until I was satisfied with the image. The final step was to place a piece of damp paper on top of the completed plate and hand crank it through my etching press which transfers the ink on the plate to the paper.
It was a magical experience after printing this monotype print when I slowly lifted the paper off the printed plate to see my time and effort had not been in vain. With monotypes… you just never know! 🙂 This piece has been hand created, hand signed and numbered 1 of 1.
