Tiny tokens monoprint
This is a monoprint inspired by a couple of the tokens on display in the museum. Here they are much enlarged in size. I like the unpredictability of making a monoprint. This was done by rolling paint onto a plastic sheet, drawing the design directly onto the paint with the end of a paint brush, and then placing a piece of cartridge paper over it. The result varies according to the amount of paint you use, the pressure with which you press it down, etc. Each print is unique, and you can only make one print at a time using this method, hence the term monoprint.
