#the100dayproject completed

I started the 100 day project on 31 January 2021 and completed it on 10 May 2021. Wow 100 days! It sounded like a long time when I started, and May seemed like such a long way off. And yet, here I am, and the project is finished. In reality the time flew by and I had a lot of fun along the way.

At the start of the project I made the decision to break down the 100 days into 10 mini-projects. And having decided I would print something everyday, I chose a different print method to explore every 10 days. I think this really helped to keep me motivated and to keep the project interesting.

Here is a selection of the prints I made:

Days 1-10: Lino printing
Days 11-20: Drypoint etching on a mini 3d-printed printing press
Days 21-30: Monoprinting
Days 31-40: Collagraph printed with a gelli plate
Days 41-50: Gelli printing
Days 51-60: Printing with found objects
Days 61-70: Screen-printing
Days 71-80: Cyanotype
Days 81-90: Image transfer
Days 91-100: Xcut Xpress printing press

You can view the full project on Instagram at #100daysofmarkmakingwithprint and read more about the 100 day project in my earlier blog post.

I really enjoyed something about each printing process and would find it difficult to choose a favourite. I plan to take some time to reflect on what I have learned in this process and to notice what I enjoyed the most (or didn’t enjoy!) as I decide the next steps in my printmaking journey. Do you have a favourite printing method?
