Quick Technique: Same Stencil but Different Results

May's "Year of Gelatin Printing" workshop was all about stenciling (using a stencil and making your own).  So, I thought I'd share a quick and easy gelatin printing technique with you today (the video is about one minute long):

How you print the stencil when using a gelatin plate (Gelli Plate, Gel Press Plate) makes a big difference.  You may love one kind of print and hate the other.  Or you may like both of them, but want to use each at different times.  This stencil is called "Circle Jumble" and I'm using Liquitex Basics acrylic paint.

Here's the comparison:

It's amazing how big a difference there is between these two methods!  Is this a technique that you use in your gelatin printing?  I'd love to know!

Thanks for stopping by!
