Making mono-prints

Week 2 of our print project began with finding out about mono-printing – a process that makes just one unique print.

The warm-up involved learning to write backwards. We started with our name and then added another word and a number from 1-10 to represent how we were feeling. Finley felt like he was 13 out of 10 but when we read it the right way round it came out as 31 out of 10!

Then we worked in pairs to make prints of each other. We began by inking up the perspex sheets with a roller to get them ready for printing.

The results were…

fantastic, creative, joyful, fun, untidy, different, new, interesting, happy

I wish I could do this at home

I would like to show my dad

I used the print to tell a story

I liked the look of it

the heart represents how good it is to feel loved
