Monotype Workshop

Hey all,
I was thinking about submitting a class proposal to do a monotype workshop at our multi arts center (I'm also doing scratchboard classes), since they can be hand rubbed and don't need a press, but I was wondering what to do about inks. Are there inks that are more kid friendly and don't require harsh solvents to clean up? Do you have any other print making workshop ideas that would work on a smaller budget?

Thanks!

Re: Monotype Workshop

Hi Kristen - Createx makes monoprint water-based non-toxic colours - very kid friendly. But you have to do the paint on mylar, let dry, and transfer to pre-wetted watercolour paper. Betty

After posting this, I check out another thread http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show....php?t=1052142
that gives a lot of good information. B.

Re: Monotype Workshop

Akua Kolor might be another option to consider
http://www.waterbasedinks.com/archiv...iques/monotype

the medium is non-toxic and soap and water cleanup

Re: Monotype Workshop

Hi Kristen,

Why not use watercolours and gouache? They are water soluble.

Go for Derivan block printing inks. Waterbased and waterwashup. Relatively inexpensive and will print onto most surfaces.
