  • Strappo Technique

    Strappo is a combination of painting and printmaking. It is a monotype dry acrylic image

    transfer that was developed and named by artist, Harold Garde. This technique has been

    recognized by the New York Metropolitan Museum and a sample of the Strappo image is

    in the museum print library collection.

    An acrylic painting is developed, painted on a clear glass plate in reverse. When the im-

    age is fully formed and dry, to thicken the acrylic skin, successive layers of acrylic gesso

    are added. For the transfer process, fresh coats of acrylic gesso are applied both to the

    back of the glass plate and on the sheet where the image will be placed. The plate is

    placed on the prepared surface while the fresh gesso surfaces are still wet. Weights are

    placed to insure contact while the gesso layers bond. After the acrylic layers are bonded,

    the image and attached surface will be peeled from the glass. It is exactly the image as

    painted. The image, a monotype, is now transferred and the glass plate is clean. The sur-

    face of the image is smooth because it was developed on the smooth surface of the

    glass. A great advantage is that it does not require the use of a press.

    "Who can say wherein lies the charm of the monotype -- that unique print from a painted plate, which stands in the half shadow between painting and printmaking? . . . Its sponta-neity and freshness, its directness and freedom place it apart from other traditional print media as a means of artistic expression that should not be overlooked."

    -- Ida Ten Eyck O'Keeffe, 1937
