Hi everyone. It's been some time since I posted last but all is not lost. I have been doing lots of artwork, some painting but also lots of monotypes on gell plates. These are a good subtitute for the costly etching presses which also take up a lot of room. Gell plates can be handmade and I will post a recipe that works very well and keeps without refrigeration and can be melted again and again.
I have discovered delicate and detailed stencils and stamps or make them myself. I use a great variety of tools from twigs to brayers to make marks as long as they don't damage the surface of the plate. I use Gelli Arts plates and my own in various shapes like circles or squares. There are endless uses for the prints from journal pages to jewelry. I will post one of my favourites that I keep in my personal collection. I will be posting some new prints soon in my regular pages for sale and will be shipped on foam core or framed as the client wishes. Cheers, Sybille
