Potato Masher

I have had a quick go at working with the rather strange potato masher purchased from a basket of old second hand kitchen tools the other week. My first impression was 'this will be good' but actually I found it rather disappointing. Then I squiggled it in the printing pigment and started to make some mono-prints.... aahhh, much better!

The potato masher inked with some black pigment.

Using the masher in formal patterns. Somewhat boring.....

Over-lapping prints.

Now this is better! The masher squiggled in the pigment and mono-printed.

Another mono-print.

Double mono-print, black, then red.

And another piece in my 12 series. Detail only. Have completed two this week so am feeling good....
