Castprinting is a technique developed by Jon George.  As with many other printing processes, multiple copies of the original can be obtained; this is of course the beauty of printing.  The cast print is unique because the original drawing is made using a liquid gesso medium so that the final print has a loose, fluid flow to it. Using the  gesso drawing, a plaster block is created which is then inked and used to create a print. More than one colour requires further blocks. The process of castprinting needs to be done in stages, as the gesso drawings and the plaster blocks need time to dry. Although great fun, it is a rigorous and time consuming process. The Art of Growing Club worked with Jon over four sessions, but the results were certainly well worth the effort!
