Event Description

Gelatin printing is a form of monoprinting in which a gelatin slab is used as a printing plate along with acrylic paints or water-soluble inks to create images. Unlike many other printing methods, very little pressure is required to make monoprints using this technique. With a Gelli plate, there is no need for fancy equipment and tools, and you will leave the class with an armload of prints! Utilizing simple mark-making tools, stencils, rubber stamps, and masks, you will be amazed at the variety of prints you can produce. Create greeting cards, artist trading cards, frameable art, and more, and leave with your own printing plate. Instructor: Carolyn Brooks
