MYTHS AND LEGENDS: PRINTING THE STORY (on plexiglass) ASSIGNMENTS

Monotypes and plexiglass- Fast and economical way to trace your image with monotype or etching ink on a brush, q-tip or other painting tools. To follow you would place the plate on the etching press face up, then run it through with printmaking paper on top. This method takes the ink off of the smooth surface. Therefore producing one of a kind prints.

Diana Wiseman, monotype and drypoint printing methods together. Otherwise, known as a monoprint.

Drypoint and plexiglass- The transparent surface is made of plastic which scratches easily and therefore serves well when creating intaglio prints. Lines engraved into the plate with an etching needle will catch the ink. The inking process involves covering the surface then removing ink from the smooth plate. The remaining ink is left to rest in the incisions. You can make numerous prints from the same plate.

LASER WARE ASSIGNMENT (Inspirations)
Historical, cultural and modern jewelry designs, as well as materials you have around you, can serve as inspirations for the bracelet or necklace you design and make for your peer. Research on your own to come up with desired outcomes.

Examples:
1. Images of Egyptian and Baroque historical jewelry below show how their style and construction have remained a timeless inspiration for the way jewelry is designed and made today.
2. The modern designs below reflect the trends and examples of what can be made as laser cut outcomes. The materials will differ as metal is not an option with the laser cutter. (The list of materials you can use when laser cutting.)
3. The examples of jewelry made out of recycled materials show inventive ways to design without waste.
