Mono-printing over pre-painted surface...

Adding mono-printing to painted cloth can add depth and interest. I hope you enjoy this brief pictorial tutorial.  
painted cotton duck
mono-printing plate of 4 ml painters plastic,  cut to cover area  to be surface designed
place plastic directly on top of area you wish to mono-print over.
The plastic gives a clear view. Apply thick paint. Try spreading with old plastic card.
draw into the paint with a recycled hardened eraser on a old pencil or
 anything else that will give you the result you want. Experiment! 
flip and place on desired area
brayer firmly and peel corner to peek. if needed brayer more.
remove plastic to reveal mono-print
finished and ready for next step

What a great idea! When you flip the plastic the image would be mirror imaged then, right? I always get that mixed up.

Yup, flipped will be reversed. Matters more with text.
For text, write on lightweight paper, flip & tape to window or place on light box, trace in the paint that's on the plastic.
