As promised, today I am sharing some photos of the fabrics I made in Pat Pauly's "Glorious Prints" class.
I didn't have the space to take photos of the big pieces of fabric, so these are all close ups of the details:
Some observations about working with dye:

Can't wait to use my new fabrics! Thanks for stopping by!
Send help! Or maybe just more paint! ;)
I can't stop with the gelatin prints! I made some more prints with magazines using Birgit Koopsen's fabulous technique:
I love how the printing process starts to abstract and break down the perfectly formed image. The hot pink print in the upper left corner is the ghost of the green print in the center. And I think you can tell that the other three face prints were all made from the same image. Believe it or not, the orange one is actually the first print, then the baby pink, and finally the yellow and pink one that's cropped at the top.
Some things that have worked for me in this process:
P.S. There are actually several examples of printing in this photo, besides the gelatin prints!
I also tried the technique from the Marsha Valk video I shared last week all about using a crayon/oil pastel/china marker as a gelatin plate resist.
Here's a 30-second video of me doing this technique:

I'm actually using two different brands of gelatin plates in this video and I didn't notice any difference in performance.
What's your favorite gelatin printing technique? Leave me a link or just describe it. I'd love to know!
