Test Print 22
Hand pulled, one-of-a-kind silkscreen monoprint.
What the heck?
I'll tell ya what the heck:
Test prints are an integral and often surprisingly beautiful and playful part of the hand printed process. They are never ever the same, and therefore true, one-of-a-kind, individual Monoprints. Made from varied layers and layers of inks from different print runs to check colors, clean out a messy screen and a dozen other reasons, Test Prints are spontaneously created and basically, magical. Hence once a test print is sold, that's it, gone baby.
I keep a few with me in the studio while printing and every now and then one looks suddenly nice & done. Like this one!
- Inks: 8 colors from 4 screens with cyan, magenta, bright love red, and black hand-mixed and non-toxic water based silkscreen inks.
- Size: 15 x 22 inches (38.1 cm x 55.9 cm.)
- Paper: Archival, no-acid, recycled content, American made Cougar Opaque White, 100lb cover weight.
- Fits beautifully into either a standard 16" x 20" frame by trimming the border, or into an 18" x 24" frame as is with a matte.
Note: Due to their functional and traveling nature, test prints are often messy, perhaps with a finger print, or a minorly bent corner, scuffs, and even the evidence of salty tears, all a part of the print making highs and lows and highs again.
