MAGIC! Basic materials are inexpensive, non-toxic, and clean up with water. The process is extremely versatile and is equally well suited for professional printmakers, home enthusiasts, professional artists, and young children.  
   No two prints are alike. The appeal lies in the unique translucency that creates a quality of light very different from a painting or screen print, and the beauty of this media is also in its spontaneity and its combination of printmaking, painting and drawing mediums.  

1. good gelatin, hot water, mixing bowl and deep cookie sheet or tray.    
2. inks,  brayer,  ink roll-out plate (glass is best)
3.  A variety of surface decorating tools  brush/ spritzer/string thread feathers washers stencils...
4. paper or fabric to print on. Remember to set up a space for drying!

 Our recommendation: the BEST Gelatin for Printmaking is our particularly  strong and clear gelatin. Strong 300-bloom variety is food-safe, and is an exceptional value ~ half the price of Knox (and not in those tiny 1/2 oz packets. rrgh!) Long shelf life at room temp or refrigerator if kept dry. Please allow 2 Tablespoons of gelatin per cup of water. May be remelted and pour up to 4 times.
