Monoprint at home

Step by step instructions to try this at home.


A mirror or some non porous material that will be flat.

Washable markers

A spray bottle with water

clean sponge


!. color on the mirror with the washable markers. Sometimes the marker shrinks a bit and seem sto disappear but it will still print.

2. Spray the paper lightly and wipe with the clean sponge so that it's just damp.

3. Place the paper wet side down onto the mirror and rub gently over the entire back of the paper.

4. Pull the paper of the mirror and view your image.

Moving the paper while on the mirror will create a double image so be gentle.

re-assess how the print came out and decide what you need to do to make the next one better. For example more water on the paper, better rubbing, more marker.
