Description
Cloth Paper Scissors Editor Jenn Mason guides you through the principles of backgrounds, middle grounds, and foregrounds as they relate to mixing monoprints and collage. First you’ll learn how to make quick and easy backgrounds using acrylic and gelatin printing plates with a large array of texture tools, stencils, and hand-cut masks. Next you’ll work on the middle ground as you start to build the story of your art by adding collage elements and image transfers. Finally you’ll add the finishing touches to your art with the addition of the foreground, which includes all sorts of drawing, sketching, and stitching. Learn tips for successful printmaking sessions, including how working in a series will strengthen your work, how to lengthen your working time, and how to print in layers. This DVD contains many useful techniques that you can immediately start working into your own art.

Very Elementary Review by Muff
Rating

Is this something Jenn did a decade ago and they just released? It is very, very basic. For "layers," I had hoped for more than a brayered background with a couple things pasted or stenciled on it. Please check out other CPS DVDs for some more sophisticated work. Sorry to give a poor review, but this just is an embarrassment. It wasn't worth the deeply discounted price.
