“Where There’s Smoke” – Monotype

December 30, 2010

"Where There's Smoke" - Acrylic Monotype on Freezer Paper, 4 x 4"

I like the way acrylic paint adheres to freezer paper – imperfectly. If you look closely, you can see that because the thin plastic covering is impermeable, there are effects that you wouldn’t get on paper or canvas.

I have sealed this completely with a generous coat of clear gel to keep the paint from peeling. I will mount this little square onto an 8 x 10″ sheet of watercolor paper.

    Thanks for the freezer paper idea. It reminded me when l was at college when we tried mixing acrylic paint with stuff you wash pots in and little bit of water. You get some great prints out from that.
    Thanks for waking my brain up, going now to have a good think and see what else is hiding there to.

      Jill, now you’ve go me thinking too. Stuff you wash pots in. Mixed with acrylics. I’m guessing it’s to retard the drying so you have time to print? Thanks for visiting and for your comment! (And for the seed of an idea.)

I love getting your comments, so please don't be shy! Your feedback is valued.
