Monoprinting Ideas

Some of you are interested in making monoprints too and are disappointed not  to own  a Gelli Plate.
As I know the plate is available in Europe now too - in the Netherlands and the U.K.- GREAT NEWS!
If you want to try out the "FAUX GELLI PLATE TECHIQUE" .. you can check out different videos on You tube for simple ideas if you don´t want to make a real gelatine plate to try it out. Links below!scroll down this post!
Have fun !
I take a glass plate instead of the original. I think the Gelli Plate is much  better, but I enjoy it with my variation too!

Wer die Monoprinttechnik mal ohne die super Gelli Platte probieren will und auch keine Lust hat Gelatineplatten selber herzustellen (ich nehme eine Glasplatte als Ersatz - oder Moosgummiplatten) sollte sich mal die verschiedenen Videos zu Gemüte führen- Habt Spaß !

  7. Danke für die Links, liebe Susi.
    Ich denke, dass das eine Riesenkleckderei ist, aber viel Spaß macht.

  8. Gelatin monoprinting is taking the world by storm (funny saying!) is SO much fun once you start you don't want to stop

    Our local art group will be doing it again soon in our get together. I have a homemade gelli plate that I boil again and again to keep it fresh

    Your got beautiful results using the glass for your monoprints!

  9. die Glasplatte ist eine tolle Alternative, danke
