NH:BenFranklinI think that should take up enough of your time today. Which do you think are true?

Today’s print is from the Earth Science area.
“Natural History:Ben Franklin”. Aquatint etching,  hard ground etching,linocut, chine collé, trace transfer monotype. Monoprint. Edition 1/1.  For sale! Contact me for details on purchasing through my blog or etsy site.

Just the Facts: (of the Natural History Monoprint Series)
Image size=12″x 18″. Framed 24″x 30″. Printed on Rives BFK white archival paper. Edition 1/1. To begin, each print background consists of 2, differently colored, inked, aquatinted copper plates printed over each other. This produces the variegated stripes.
Then I employ a variety of printing techniques: linocuts, collograph, etchings, monotyping, chine colle, etc., to create the subject. I design all the fonts by hand.

NH:BenFranklinA mid-series monoprint, and one of my favorites. I was now printing the smaller etching plates onto archival papers-building a library of images that I could add onto the prints by chine collé. The portrait of Ben is a transfer technique-directly done onto the background paper. I used and oval mylar mask when printing the background stripes to create the blank area. A little bit of real Natural History for the day!

Please ask me questions about any of the techniques I named in this post. Realize it is very techie printer!
