2018 Workshop

Summer Clayprint Workshop

in Denver

June 19-22

WHAT IS A CLAYPRINT?

There is nothing like this process. You start a clay print by building a slab of clay in a wooden frame then allow the clay to become leather hard. Colored slips are applied and textures are embedded and carved into the surface of the clay. Then a substrate of polyester is placed over the design and hand pressure is applied with a wooden pizza roller and metal spoon. A thin layer of colored clays adhere to the substrate. The print is permanently bonded to the surface which becomesa multi-colored, archival, monotype distinguished by its velvety surface and rich color.
