Strappo, a unique Monoprint and Monotype
The Woven Tale Press arts editor,
Donald Kolberg, demonstrates strappo printmaking
[dropcap]S[/dropcap]trappo combines painting and printmaking. First, an acrylic paint is created on a clear glass plate. When the image is fully formed, it is left to dry. Then, successive layers of acrylic gesso are added. This thickens the acrylic skin. Finally, the completed image is then mounted on museum board— a dry acrylic transfer.
