In this two day workshop, participants will learn to create unique, original prints using the ink viscosity method. Viscosity measures a fluid’s resistance to flow. Following in the tradition of Krishna Reddy, artists will explore combinations on inks mixed to three different consistencies, or viscosities. Starting with clean plexiglass plates, participants will learn how to achieve various effects through the use of stencils, brayers, brushstrokes, and solvent removal methods. Additional processes can be incorporated for further exploration such as drawing with a brayer and working with ghost impressions. Due to the ease of viscosity monotypes, participants can work fast paced and may complete a series of prints by the end of this workshop.
