Today I'm sharing the gelatin printing I've done over the last 7 days. Some good. Some bad. Some struggles. Some victories. Check it out (These images are embedded from instagram. If you can't see them, click HERE.):
- These are more time consuming than I intended. I may have to (a) set a time limit, (b) use a smaller plate, or (c) work on a print over a few days. After all, I did say it was 100 Days of Gelatin Printing, not Finished Prints. We shall see.
- I'm actually running out of paint. I mean, I still own plenty of paint. But I'm actually throwing empty tubes away. It's amazing. Looks like I'm going to have to do some online shopping!!!
- I definitely have some "oldies but goodies" stencils in my stash that I just loooove for printing. And I've been dragging them out. I suspect that my next round of stencils for the Crafter's Workshop will be very oriented towards gelatin printing.... I'm definitely planning on cutting a few new prototypes based on some ideas that I have!
- My favorite prints from this week are the ones that use a primary palette. I often try to get away from that triad of yellow, blue, and red...but I can't! I love it so.
- I'm developing some gelatin printing "cheats." You know, the go-to saves that rescue a print every single time. That's a good sign. It's what a daily project like this almost always ends up doing to me. I develop a bag of tricks.
Before I go, I wanted to share this video I put together, which explains the very basics of what gelatin printing is:
