Gelatin Plate Fingerpaint Monoprints

Here are two consecutive prints from the same plate onto the same piece of fabric.

And the tree . . . looking very fingerpainted, but with the right stitching and embellishments - should be stunning. Yes?

This particular print was done with fingers and paintbrush. I used a paintbrush to get the grass texture on the ground, but the sky was painted with fingers.

How fun to play like a kid again. I love gelatin prints and I bet its all squishy and cold and slippery. :-)

What an interesting technique and fabulous results. I much say it also looks like fun.

Isn't that the most fun process? All squishy and to add fingerpainting in the mix, well that's just pure fun!

LOVE the tree especially!
