I consider myself a printmaker; I've been working, almost exclusively, in printmaking (Clayprinting) for the last six years.
I found gel printing online recently, and confess to viewing hours of youtube videos on the subject. I was ready to invest in some gel plates (Dick Block has a good assortment at the best price) when I discovered recipes for DYI gel plates.
The following recipe looked promising: few ingredients that I already had & simple procedure.
1 1/2 c glycerine
1 1/2 c water
7 pkgs. unflavored gelatin
So here we go!
|gelatin sprinkled on the glycerine|
|after the addition of the hot water|
|poured into the cookie sheet & cake pan|
Now I need to try to make some prints on it. Maybe soon! Keep watching.
