Printmaking – Monoprints with Meshell Melvin

Meshell Melvin • Printmaking

This is a fast and easy printmaking technique. Using acrylic paint on a smooth surface (glass or tin), students paint an image onto it. Paper is then applied and the print is pulled off. Students are encouraged to work quickly (the paint must not dry) and so it is common for each student to produce a number of prints.
