Moonlit Churchyard

Using the polystyrene disc from the packaging of a frozen pizza as the support and a biro to “engrave” the image, this print was real fun to make.  The water-based ink took well to the polystyrene and the baren used was the back of a wooden spoon. The image itself is made-up i.e. out of my head – but the light, perhaps moonlight on the wet foreground, which is a result of the random inking gives a sense of atmosphere. Lifting the paper after printing is tricky due to the weightlessness of the polystyrene. Total time – from idea to finished print 50 minutes. Good result – and the pizza was nice too!
