Gelatin Printing with Nature
If you haven’t tried gelatin printing, you must, its addictive! For these prints I made my own plate, but you can also buy them online. We used a mixture of found and natural elements like onion bags, string, leaves, grasses etc which give interesting textures. The process is very simple, the plate is inked first, then the objects placed on to it, a print is taken, the object removed and then a ‘ghost print’ taken from what remains, which can be very detailed. You can keep repeating this process, overlapping prints, never sure what the finished result will be.
