Registration for Pulp Printing
Another Step closer to nailing this process and perfecting the registration.
This is my first attempt at pulp printing since my trip to Australia (in July 2015). I decided to try and re create a Sidney Nolan painting because when I am teaching myself a process I don't want to get caught up with the idea of making art. Taking on another artists work also mimics the collaborative act and enables me to approach the working process in that way. I have never tried to register a 9 colour image before using this technique, and that is what I hope to teach myself while working on this image.
The problem I am having is that I can't see the image through the screens in order line them up.
Pulp printing with Dr Tim Mosely at Queensland College of Art, Brisbane
In July 2015 I had an opportunity to go to Australia to learn Tim Mosely's method of pulp printing as part of my MA's professional practice module.
Papermaking using metal moulds and acetate stencils
After learning the basics of papermaking from master papermaker Elaine Cooper I have been experimenting with the process trying to make works of art just from paper pulp. I am influenced and inspired by the paper pulp works of Chuck Close and David Hockney and even more so the collaborative printers that worked with them. Below are my first attempts at using paper pulp in a creative manner.
