Printmaking Inspiration and Tips: Q&A with Dorit Elisha

My only formal training in printmaking came many, many, years ago in a high school art class. We made intaglio prints, silkscreen prints, and woodcuts. I absolutely loved the class and still have some of my prints (they're all of houses, a favorite theme of mine to this day). Printmaking with mixed media by Dorit…

Texture-Boosting Monoprinting Techniques

Imagine the Printmaking Possibilities of Collagraphy

As someone who grew up thinking I had to color between the lines and follow the rules, when I had children I had to stop myself from making my girls play with their toys "the right way." They always liked to use their imaginations to make up their own rules for a game, use pieces…

Easy Sewing Project for Mixed-Media Artists

Over the long Memorial Day weekend I spent a lot of time on my porch. I drank peach iced tea while dyeing fabric, screen printing fabric, and sorting through a bag of fancy fibers I might use to embroider the fabric later.
