Last year at the fall TAEA conference in Fort Worth a man did a
demonstration of a mono-printing technique. He used glue and mylar to
transfer designs. Mr. Hugh Gale from Savannah College of Art and Design
did the demonstration. You can draw or paint a design on the frosted side
of the mylar. Place the finished art face down on illustration board and
tape the back side of the mylar to the board. Flip up the mylar and run a
bead of glue along the hinged edge. Flip down the mylar and squeegee the
glue down between the art and the board. Allow the glue to dry and gently
peel the mylar from the board. Multiple layers can be built up.
