Gelatin Mini-Prints

I made these mini-gelatin prints to giveaway as “trades” during the Call of the Wile Soul art retreat last November.  I printed with a bunch of my own stencils, store bought stencils and found objects.

Remembering November

November was a gust that blew through here like a hurricane and left in it’s path smiles, laughter, crafts, gifts and cheers…and continued through December.    We celebrated many family birthdays and welcomed my new niece Reece!  Here are a few fun photos of things we made and did in November:

Gelatin Printing

As promised here are my first experimental prints from my own hand-made gelatin plates.  It is a lot of fun and I think I have an idea for a series.  Something like sacred vessels. I played with Golden Acrylics and some other cheap iridescent paint.  I love the look of the iridescent but it doesn’t […]
