Clay Monoprints

 Clay mono-printing is a relatively new process. Working with clay in liquid form, color is added through stains and dry pigments.

The colored liquid clay is applied with brushes and other implements onto a clay slab. When the image is complete, it is bedded into the slab, which often bears the ghost of images from previous works. A special paper called Remay is then prepared and placed on the image. Using a roller, the image is transferred onto the paper. It is the positive charge in the paper that attracts the negative particles in the clay to adhere permanently.

Each monoprint is therefore one of a kind.
