Gelatin plate prints

If you love scrapbooking, paper arts or mono printing you will love gelatin printing.



 These pretty papers were created using a homemade permenant gelatin plate (you tube has a few videos and recipes for these) but you can also purchase a ready made Gell Printing Plate from amazon or local crafting stores.  These prints can be used in so many ways, from creating cards and tags to backgrounds in art journals or mixed media pieces, and because you are in essence mono-printing no 2 papers will ever look the same. These were created using hand cut stencils/stamps and basic craft paint. I have also used Golden Open's for some experiments and on hot dry days I have also added Debbie Travis glazing liquid (just what was on sale) to extend the working time of the basic craft paint. These are a few the turned out so well that they are now mounted and hung independently.
