Good Mail & More Gelatin Prints

Friday was a good mail day! I received two Little Treasures in exchange for the two I'd sent in to the Little Treasures Exchange.

The left treasure was made by Pam Rappaport, the right one by Little Treasures designer Carol Fletcher. Pam's won second place in the contest. Don't they look lovely together?

I used my gelatin plate one last time, and here are the results.



I wasn't going for as much patterning or marks as on the previous days. Also, the longer the gelatin sits, the harder it gets, and I think the lack of resilience makes a difference in the printing.

your gelatin print colors are beautiful. I'm still trying to figure out how to use the fabrics I made. One of my Siberian Huskies likes to eat the gelatin plate when I'm done with it.

Your fabrics are wonderful and your little treasure boxes are delightful.

Thanks, gals! One thing I forgot to mention was that on some of these gelatin prints I used fabric that was predyed or painted. I liked this because I didn't end up with any stark white backgrounds between the printed areas, as I did the first time I tried gelatin printing a few years ago.

I think you should try chocolate-pudding-cake printing, then I could eat the leftovers :)
