This method of monoprinting was entirely new to me and I couldn't wait to try it out last night. All I needed was fabric paint (I used black, and later, added a little green and blue), a Plexiglas print plate, a brayer (or soft, sponge-type roller), plain paper, fabric to print on, and a ball-point pen.* Oh, two more items: tape and a temporary adhesive spray. (All I had was temporary fabric basting spray, and it worked fine.)
*Actually, Laura called it a "biro," but it looked like a simple ball-point pen to me. Can anyone tell me if they're the same?
