Mono Printing

Well, the title says it all really. Today I tried mono printing. It was drawn out, laborious, horrifically messy and the results were poor. Brilliant 5 hours of my life.

I didn't expect to gain much from it, but I said that about drypoint and I was wrong so I had to give it the benefit of the doubt and give it a go. Mono printing is not for me. I can see its uses - solid colours, graphic shapes - great for stencils, but the images I'm using are primarily photographic and it's extremely difficult to get that across through mono print without it looking like a child has executed it.
