New Technique.

 I thought that I might try making a printing plate with an old piece of foamcore, using modelling paste for some texture.
I've never tried doing this before, and I'm hoping that I might be able to print some interesting background papers for more gelatine printing.
I used some of my recent spiral stamps to make an overall random pattern of spirals in the modelling paste. I'll leave it to dry over night and see what happens. It could of course crack the first time I try to use it, but that may in itself create some interesting textures for printing. I'll have to sand down some of the pointier edges as they would probably cut the paper when I try to press down on the plate. Watch this space!
