Playing fabric, Gelli plates, paint & ink
One of the best things about being an art/quilting instructor is that when my class has only one of two people in it, I get to play along. Last week I taught a gelatin mono-printing class that had very few students so, I got to paint while teaching. It was so much fun. Here are some of the pieces that I painted. The pink and violet pieces were done using a mix of Jacquard Lumiere, Neopaque and Textile paints and the blue/blue green ones on the bottom were done using Tsukineko inks thickened with Aloe Vera gel. All were made on a medium sized Gelli Plate using found objects to create texture. I had a blast!
