An interesting way to create surfaces is to build them with “airy” or “empty areas”. By this I mean to use gauze or cheesecloth surfaces and accentuate the lightness of the surface before applying the precoat. Also you can experiment with a variety of synthetic surfaces and achieve intriguing effects.
For this video workshop we will look at cheesecloth, melted reemay and synthetic felt. Although synthetics are often melted after printing, these surfaces can be altered before printing. The only parameters for the synthetics is that after manipulating they flow safely through your printers. Take some of the ideas presented and see how far you can take this type of process.
