Monday was the first day of great on-line class I've signed up for. The class is being taught by Carla Sonheim, a Seattle artist and author of several art books. Yes, it is all about printmaking using a Gelli Plate.
Some of you know "Gelli Plate" is the registered name of a product that looks like gelatin and feels like gelatin but is made of a synthetic material of some sort. As much as, I'm sure it is a practical tool.....I'm not quite ready to give in and go out to buy something I can make so easily for so little money, so, I make my own gelatin plate.
Using Knox Gelatine at a two tablespoons of gelatin to one cup of water ratio, I use a 12x8 Pyrex cake pan for a mold.
Here are a few sample I made from the first class.....can't wait to see what we do in the second class, tomorrow.
I'll keep you posted on the next steps and how these pages change over the week!
In the meantime, go here to Carla's blog to learn more about this class and other classes she is teaching.
