Gelatine plates - How to!

I just recieved a lovely comment from Fran C. Asking how I have done the gelatine plate monoprints.  Instead of me re-inventing the wheel, the best thing I can do is refer you to the website of a Textile artist, Linda Germain.  Not only does she tell how to make the plates, she has YouTube video of the "how to" as well.

This is where I learnt how to do it!

And to answer your other question Fran  - the feathers did not begin with feathers  They are cicad fronds.  I used them as a mask and then took a second print from the plate to pick up the paint left by the mask.

Thanks for your answer Sally. Will go to the site and look at the technique. Always looking for something different to try. We don't have a garden here at the unit as we share, anything in pots we would have to leave behind.
