This morning, two artists from my Studio Montclair crit group came to the studio to do gelatin printing. One is a painter and sculptor; the other is a photographer and printmaker. Neither has worked with gelatin before and they did some amazing work. They monoprinted on paper and I joined them in experimenting.
These are two of Yvette's prints and I am sorry I didn't take pictures of Susan's. They both worked in the same red and black but their sensibilities and results were entirely different. Me? I printed one thing that needs going back into.
We used Akua-Color inks, which work beautifully on paper. I bought them for collagraphs through the press and haven't used them much, but I may buy a few other colors and keep working on paper.
As far as fabric - I have about 3 things in the air and keep schlepping boxes of bits home and back again, thinking I will work on them at night. But somehow, no. This has been a busy week and promises to be nonstop from tomorrow through Sunday. That is a GOOD thing.
