Julie Fei Fan Balzer showed us how to use everyday household objects to make texture on our gelatin printing plate.
These are the odds and ends I used:
Pieces of lace, corrugated cardboard, tapestry canvas, grout spreader, tube from carpet tape, jar lid, bubble wrap and part of a plastic cake tray, were my choices.
Second print with new layer of yellow paint and using the grout spreader
New paint layers were purple and magenta
First print collected the left over paint from the previous layers
Cleaned the plate, new paint layers – blue and orange
Second print after first paint layer dried and new blue layer brayed on
And magically the Gelli plate was clean enough to put away.
Thanks for the ideas, Julie.
