Gelli Plate Printing: The Ghost Image

I’ve been gelli plate printing for awhile now and have found I really like the second or the ghost image better than the original. I thought it would be fun to put together a short video for those of you who haven’t tried printing with these plates. I’m using textile paints on fabric, but this would also work with regular paints on paper. I’m also using those stencil masks I made and posted about here.


Here are the two prints side by side. I like the first print, but think the second one has more character.

I continue to collect more and more of these prints. Now to decide what to do with them!
