Workshop


Wendy Huhn demonstrated gelatin plate printing and sent us home with a small piece of gelatin. This is the unflavored, clear household gelatin. It is a neat printing plate, as it is so unpredictable. Paint is applied with a roller. You make marks on it, use a rubber stamp to remove some paint, and then print by putting the fabric or paper on top of it. Here's what I did at home.

Ooooh!!! This is wonderful! I want to try it! What is the coloring agent and are you printing on paper or fabric? Robin A.
