Mixed Media Collage with aqua LINOPRINT and AERO COLOR® Professional

We would like to present a material collage with prints and papers, drawings and more, made with aqua LINOPRINT and AERO COLOR® Professional colours by the French artist Denise Crolle-Terzaghi, who is an expert in creative mixed media and printing techniques and a great fan of our finest artists’ colours.

You will need:

 

  • 4 pieces of paper in different sizes, hand-printed with linoprint colours (brayed with a roller on a gelatin plate and marked with stencils or found objects)
  • Schmincke aqua LINOPRINT colours of your choice and ivory black (19735)
  • Schmincke AERO COLOR® Professional Black (28702) and one colour of your choice, here Cadmium orange tone (28204)
  • Schmincke AERO COLOR® Professional liner n°1
  • Thin string
  • Scrap of tarlatan and handwritten paper
  • Cutting and tracing material (mat, ruler, scissors, cutter knife, pencil, tracing paper, blotting paper)
  • Paper glue
  • A4 drawing paper
  • Stamp with alphabet letters

Step 1 and 2: 

Take the biggest of your prepared hand printed papers and position it onto the drawing paper. Make some marks with a pencil to remember the best place and glue it onto the paper. Transfer your design using tracing paper and a pencil.

Step 3 and 4:

Fill up the AERO COLOR® Professional liner with AERO COLOR® Professional black. Shake it well and use it on a scrap of paper until you get a perfect line. Then use it to trace the design and doodle it. Dye the scrap of tarlatan with AERO COLOR® Professional ink (here Cadmium orange tone) and let it dry.

Step 5 and 6:

Glue the different papers slightly on top of each other starting on the right side of the design. Glue the piece of tarlatan on top of the papers.

Step 7 and 8:

Using a gelatin plate, a brayer and aqua LINOPRINT Ivory black, dye the string until it is completely black. Carefully lay the string onto the right side of the design making loops. Then press it onto the ground with a piece of blotting paper.

Step 9 and 10:

Take off the string carefully and let the print dry thoroughly. Ink the stamp with black aqua Linoprint colour and print the words " in love ".
