Gelli Printing Video!

All my printing junk got moved to the kitchen for the day, because frankly, it is very scary to play with open bottles of acrylic paint all over the desk and if you remember, I already had a couple of close encounters with the wet goop on the carpet lol
I made a few stencils and tried them on my gelatin plate and different kinds of paper. I have tried copy paper, sketch, scrapbook and deli papers.... and I wanted to work on watercolor but for my dry weather, the watercolor paper is way too thirsty to make a slow print. You have to work fast on that one!

Anyway, here is a little video with the mixed results of WIPs. I will scan the smaller ones, others are too large. Some were too frustrating, but as I turned on the camera I could see they have a chance, if I give them enough layers and color.

Thanks for visiting!
