Press Monoprint and Linocut Book I experimented with diďŹ€erent types of printmaking in this book. I wanted to push myself to develop interesting prints with watercolors. I layered my monoprint transfers to recreate images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope.

I started painting on mylar sheets and pressing them while they were wet on to the page. The prints came out too cloudy and I wanted more texture. I then tried letting the paint dry on the mylar and dampened the paper before I ran it through the press. This gave me the look I wanted so next I experimented in cutting the mylar into shapes so their impression would add a border to the print.
