Round Gelatin Prints

Yesterday I showed you my “new” round permanent gelatin printing plate remelted from the one I made in December. If you missed that post, here is the link to the recipe to make your own.

So today I wanted to show you the gelatin prints I made on paper using Golden Fluid acrylic paints.

I have mentioned before in my video, that I love the second or ghost print usually better than the first print so I’m showing you both.

The first ones were using Jane LaFazio’s Eucalyptus stencil from Stencil Girl.

The next first and second print are made with a piece of lace.

And the first and second print with netting.

The next two are first prints using a potato smasher.

That was so much fun. I’m looking forward to playing more, but next time with fabric.

So what, you ask, is the difference between this homemade gelatin plate and the Gelli Arts plate? The only difference I’ve come up with is that the homemade plate is softer – more spongy. I also need to store this plate in a closed box (Gelli Arts plate is stored in a clam shell container. I’m not sure how it would last just sitting out for 8 months on my worktable.) As I mentioned yesterday, I love my Gelli Arts plate, but this just gives me another size to play with.

If you’ve made one of these permanent gelatin plates, I’d love to hear what you think about it. Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful, creative week.
