A PanPastel Portrait Monoprint

PanPastels on the Gelatin Plate

Birgit Koopsen is hosting a month-long gelatin-printing party on her instagram.  Several days ago I watched a video she shared on using PanPastels on the Gelli Plate.  I immediately went tearing through my studio to grab the supplies I needed and began to experiment.  I shared a video of my first experiment on instagram earlier this week (if you can't see the video, click on the title of this blog post):

Here are my two favorite prints from that video:

But you know meI had to keep going because I looooooove to experiment!  So I decided to see if I could make the technique work on black paper with black paint.

The answer, is a resounding, yes!!

And now, I've put together a quick tutorial video for you -- answering a lot of the questions I got on instagram and providing all of the little details to make you successful -- and the video includes a super fun technique at the end, that doesn't involve stencils at all:

Here are some of the prints from the video:


I hope you'll try using PanPastel for monoprinting.  It's truly addictive!

Thanks for stopping by!
