Weathered textures

Experimenting with monotypes to try and achieve textures. Also using Akua inks to avoid the need for solvents. Oil-based prints give off some strong fumes when I take them home so I'm taking my own water-based inks to college rather than use oils and solvents. The idea is to make textures that have an aged or weathered look. Taking several ghost prints from a single plate and adding a spray of water to get more of the ink residue off the plate and onto paper. Some have a texture that remind me of stone or books beginning to rot.

And some where I'm starting to use a little colour and pattern.
