Learn the loveliness that is the Paper Litho (also known as the Gum Arabic Transfer), a simple non-toxic technique that mimics lithography using nothing more that gum arabic-laced water, black laser prints, and oil-based printing ink! You will go over the process a few times to learn the basics and go home with original art of your own.
Be prepared for evocative textures and unexpected collaboration with the materials–it really is a lovely medium!
