Printmaking

Posted by on Oct 23, 2012 in Uncategorized | 6 Comments

I got very enthusiastic when I discovered a wonderful way of printmaking, wonderfully explained by Linda Germain (find it here). Following the instructions, I made my gelatin a few days ago and today I tried it out. I followed my own instincts and experimented a lot. That’s part of the charm of the method. It allows and estimulates lots of experimentation. Here are some results of the gelatin printmaking and of manipulation of the results using Photoshop and Illustrator. I had a lot of fun doing it. Hope you enjoy the process too.
