A Transformational Technique for Paper or Cloth

 Gelatin printmaking makes beauty and is astonishingly easy. Simple as jello!
The process  inspires a spontaneity of color and texture, creating a surface that is unlike any other process.  Degas, Picasso and contemporary artists created an inventive array of beautiful works from the springboard of monotype.  
The sensitive gelatin is covered with ink, and then marks are made in the ink with found objects and stencils. Prints may be framed as is, further developed with other techniques, or used in other paper craft projects.
