I have fallen in love! Like so many before me, in The Gelli printing universe.
I started out, making my own plate from normal Gelatine powder and water. And I loved it!
It wears out though, and need re-melting, but the prints I got from it was great.
But, I needed to compare the home made plate, to the store bought ones, as I am teaching this August in Canada, so a little first hand experience was needed.
I got the plate, and off I went.
Goldens fluid acrylics and a foam stamp, that I "borrowed" from my sweet friend Maria.
Okay, not to bad, lets try a feather..
One more try-
I dont know if I am just to "old school" or I got so used to my homemade plate, but I am not 100% in love with this one!
BUT - and there is always a BUT! I made a discovery that made me happy!
Crumbled up tissue paper, now this I do love the look at.
