Sharla Hicks' Review and Comments: (quilter, artist, & owner of Soft Expressions)

As a business owner who spends her days and nights as a supervisor of the daily operations and webmaster I have little time to do my own art projects. So this last year and half I have vowed to change that and carved time out for art by taking a Mixed Media class where I was reintroduced to the printing press and I fell in love again. The teaching assistant for the printmaking portion of the class, Deborah Goldman, now offers Monoprinting using the printing press as a community education course; so every Friday for 8 weeks each spring and fall I trek over to the college and play. I grow more excited each week as my exploration takes me on journey of meshing together my many loves. Recently I began combining my love of Zentagles with my monoprints resulting in some very exciting new works. (See Zentangles on color monoprint below)

I have been looking for a book that can take me further in my printmaking exploration and a way to continue my journey at home WITHOUT the benefit of a large printing press. I found the perfect book in the recently released book by Interweave Press and Dorit Elisha, Printmaking + Mixed Media, Simple Techniques and Project for Paper & Fabric. Here you are offered a book dedicated to printmaking and the author understands our need to combine mix media so we can play with our paints, threads, foils, glitters, fibers, found objects and fabric in combination with the printmaking process.

The book offers the basics of popular printmaking techniques: screen printing, monotype printing, collagraph printing, relief printing, sun printing, even gelatin monoprinting plus ways to incorporate finished prints into mixed-media art. Each technique sounds scary until you read Dorit's concise explanation of each and then she offers a clear listing of the supplies needed, where to find them and simple step-by-step instruction with plenty of picture help to quickly put you on your personal journey of exploration.

The books offers a variety of projects to hone your printmaking skills meshed with mixed-media: fabric artist book, a handprinted calendar, a wall-art collage, greeting cards, and more. See projects to left >>>>>>

My next mixed-media exploration is going to take the screen printing instruction offered in Printmaking + Mixed-Media to make screens from my black and white Zentangles. The concise instruction offers the simple steps needed: Scan, print to transparency, use photo emulation to create the screens. I was very excited to find clear instruction to this seemingly mysterious process. Now the mystery is gone. Wish me luck!
