Working in the abstract is very freeing, and for me my favorite way to accomplish this is through Mono Printing. In my “Sync” series of mono prints I transferred ink to the plate used large and small inking brayers. I moved the ink around with the use of shaped mat board. Some textures were created with solvents, and others by pressing different materials into the ink. When your plate is run through the press the ink is transferred to the plate. You can run it through the press a second time, but the resulting image will be greatly faded.
