altered states

detail of proof

I have been back to the print shop, and was introduced to Pronto Plates- a polyester lithograph plate. It is a process which I know nothing about.  SO back to square one.  My first few proofs were so-so.  I ended up using them as foundations for drawings with gouache, gesso, ink, transfers and the rest of the materials on my worktable.  Here's one I am working on-it's about 12x18".

reworked proof, maybe still in progress


  1. Hi Ingrid, I really enjoy your blog.
    This printing technique has me interested too!
    I like the way you used your proofs as the basis for new work. I can't throw anything out and often use old torn up proofs in my collage work.
