Viscosity monotype with water-based inks involves a loose, painterly, and often, thrilling exploration playing the edge between accident and control.  Create subtle, spontaneous, one-of-a kind prints, using modified inks. Thick and thin inks resist each other in ways that allow for beautiful color interactions in delightfully unpredictable ways.  Learn some of the tricks to making this fun way of exploring color work for you, as you add to your printing vocabulary.
