I am used to working with dry paper. Working with Akua Kolor water based inks, which I have worked with for years, there was no need to wet paper. Also, when I first started out, there was no setup planned for it anyway.
Recently I have begun to expand into first paper lithography and then etching and here I was -surrounded by oil paints, mineral spirits, alcohol, acid baths - you name it. And water, water everywhere. The first time I immersed my cherished BFK paper into water, it took courage and holding my breath.
My little printmaking world was not quite the same anymore, so I took my artist friend's advice and the next time I hit the studio to play with my Akua Kolor, I made the paper wet. I've experimented with this quite a bit and produced a few smaller works. I established an album for them called 'WaterLogged".

You see one of them here. A small exercise in drawing directly on the acrylic plate with ink and water soluble pastels. Laying the wet paper over the plate and running it through the press, I had a very charming little water color type monoprint on my hands on the other side.

It has a very different feel from all the other prints I've made so far, but I do like it.
Another door opened.


Hope you enjoyed looking at this and my other prints at www.kbmatter.etsy.com.
