Day 306. Metal Monoprint Bird

1 Nov

Today’s Bird-A-Day art is an experiment on just a whim. I love monoprints, and I also love metal. So I wanted to see if I could combine two of my favorite things. Like peanut butter and jelly, this worked better than I had hoped. I took my painted plexiglass and rubbed, pressed and pounded the paint directly onto this large metal plate, creating a one-of-a-kind impression. Fun. Enjoy.

    It took a little experimenting, but the impression itself takes minutes. As we most of my bird art, the preparation and thinking things through takes more time than making it. Glad you like it Gary.

    I think it’s great. How long did it take?

Tell me what you think.
