Monotypes: Printmaking with a Gelatin Plate


We had a blast making gelatin prints.   Directions for how to do it are here.  This is really about process.    This was a  very fun process!


Here are some pictures from the day:


The gelatin plates.

 

Roll ink out with a brayer.


 

Then roll the brayer over the surface of the gelatin
so that the surface is coated with ink.
Creatix monotype ink was what I had.

 

  

Lay objects like feathers
and string and paper shapes on the plate. 
You could use leaves from the yard. 
 

Lay the paper on top.



Smooth your hands 
over the back of the paper.


 

Pull the paper off.



We had a GREAT time!
