This week the weather has taken a turn for the worst and we have had high winds and rain in Adelaide. This has meant that indoor pursuits have been very attractive so as well as developing my image making I had a session making some gelatine prints. When I say gelatine prints I mean prints made on a print plate made of gelatine, the type you eat! Apologies to any vegetarians....you can buy vegetarian gelatine but I have not tried it yet.
Gelatine print making is a great image making process as the image is uncontrollable to a certain degree and you get some wonderful texture and marks that you can't get any other way. Each print is a one off and totally unique monoprint.
|I have shared the process here just in case anybody would like to have a go at making some too.|
|Place some items on the gelatine print that you would like to make your print from.|
|You can now lift the material off your plate, and put another sheet of paper over the plate to create a ghost image which in this case is a positive image of the leaves.|
|Here are some more of my images from this week.|
