I finally got around to getting a Gelli printing plate and I am in love. Smooshing paint around the plate feels just like finger painting. I realized my brayer was missing, so I simply used an old credit card and soft brushes to make marks and swirls and I used lightly coffee dyed muslin as the printing surface. I also overprinted areas quite liberally and experimented with what could happen in a playful way without worrying about the outcome. Here’s the end result flapping in the wind.And some close-ups
Can’t wait to begin stitching on these and carve some new stamps and masks to work with this. It is dead easy, and kept me going for two hours on the cloth, paper and a accordian book I am working on as well. Why did I wait so long????????????
