Or maybe I shoulds say tri-prints?
Maia wanted to paint with the fingerpaints the other day and she wanted to do it her way. She wanted to use the roller and she wanted to squeeze (and squeeze!) the paint. She ended up with so much paint on her flimsy piece of construction paper that I was sure it wouldn't dry properly.
Â So I asked her if she wanted to try a monoprint. I handed her a piece of paper and helped her position it over her painting. She pressed it down with her hands, then lifted it up. Et voila, a monoprint!
There was still lots of paint on her paper, and she was excited about this new activity, so she did two more. I like the fingerpaints because they are soÂ translucent. But tempera paints would work as well for monoprinting.
Have you tried this? It's an easy twist on traditional painting (or fingerpainting).
