Print Inktober 2022: Days 10-16

I am really enjoying doing #PrintInktober this year. The additional challenge I set for for myself to focus on the technique of chine-collé has been deeply creatively stimulating. Before I share my most recent prints, a quick reminder about what #PrintInktober is — It's the annual printmaking adventure I started in 2018.  The challenge is open to everyone.  Here are the basics:

  • Create and post one print each day in October.
  • Use the hashtag #printinktober when you post.
  • Any stamp/block can be used – foam, silicone, rubber, hand carved, lino, whatever you want!
  • Any ink can be used – screenprinting ink, marker ink, stamping ink, printing ink, etc.
  • You can use the list of prompts, if you’d like.  Or not.
  • MOST IMPORTANTLY: Have fun and don’t worry if you miss a day (or more). The point of the challenge is to get those stamps out of storage and into use!!

Here's what I've made for days 10-16 (for each piece, you will see a still photo and a video embedded from instagram):








This is a short tutorial I posted to YouTube all about the process of chine-collé:

Monthly members have access to the real time version of this video in the online classroom.

If you're interested in learning all the details about how to do chine-collé at home and without a press or even hand carved stamps, I am teaching a live online chine-collé Zoom class on November 11, 2022.

I hope you'll give #PrintInktober a try.  It's never too late to jump in and stamp on something!
