Last week while the students were busily working on their monotypes, Brian and I sporadically painted on a large plexi inbetween helping the students. At the end of the day, we tried to print it but by then the ink had just totally dried out and was so sticky it tore the paper instead of transferring. Brian said we should just throw it away, but I had just that very morning told the students to hang on to their crappy old prints so they could rework them later on. I couldn't just throw it away now!

The paper was so torn that I needed to layer washi all over it to maintain any structural integrity. The paper was originally BFK cream, and I chine colle-ed two large sheets of white kitti katta over top when I printed the image, done in black and Payne's grey. The image is from a drawing of people falling through space done while flying back from NYC to LA. I must be a wonderful seat mate for long flights.
