Autumn leaf printing

Posted on

With Autumn in full effect, it’s a great time to have a go at printing using natural materials.

Our lesson on Wednesday night provided the chance to experiment with this monoprinting. This can be a quick way to produce a beautiful and unique print.

One method is to apply ink to a board and draw into it with tools or material, removing some of the ink. A piece of paper is then pressed onto the board to create the picture.

Another method is to apply ink to materials then use them to print onto paper, producing wonderful results. There are so many different leaves on the ground and they hold ink perfectly.

Here are some of the pictures produced on Wednesday night.
