Still Playing with the Gelli Plate.

                       I'm still playing around with the Gelli plate and my hand carved stamps.
I always had trouble with my home made gelatine plate seeming to dry out the acrylic paints, partly because of the warm weather that we've been having but even in the cool weather I was having trouble. I decided to try some 'Drying Retarder' and what a difference that makes!

    The acrylic paint stays nice and wet and I only need just a few drops to make the difference.
   I'm thinking of using these mono-prints as a sort of background to the more definite sun-prints, rather than the solid black or purple that I've been trying out recently. More play necessary!
