Children's Art: Print Workshop Day 2

On Day 2 of our printing workshop we tried monotypes.

We spread water-soluble printing color on a acrylic glass board using a brayer.
By using the eraser of a pencil we drew our pattern in the fresh paint.
For the print we simply had to lay a piece of paper onto the surface without much pressure. 
After one print you have to spread the paint again and draw something new, that is why it is called monotype ;-)
The children got some experience how thick the paint should be for good results and how detailed a picture can be.
I assume we might come back to this technique when it comes to making christmas cards ;-)
