Ledger monoprint

I'm experimenting with adding color to ledger paper with  monoprints. This paper is from a notebook of ledger paper Eana Agopian gave me. I put of coat of Yes brand paste on an acrylic sheet and added the colored imagery with pastels, then printed it on the paper. It was very difficult to remove the thin paper from the acrylic, I had to mist it with water. I realized this method works better with a better, thicker paper-- but I did manage to peel this off. Again, just experimenting.
