Gelatin Prints by linda germain

Gelatin Printmaking is:

The focus of this workshop is gelatin plate monoprints with found object “stamps” and “stencils”.  It is a wonderfully experimental process that gives results that vary from the abstract to the photographic.

The gelatin plate is made of food grade gelatin.  This soft malleable gelatin is covered with ink, and then marks are made in the ink with found objects and stencils.

Finally paper is placed on top of the ink and pressed by hand.  With each inking you can make one or two original prints, hence the name monoprints.  Students will make colorful layered prints by working one color over another until a desired result is obtained. More info on the workshop page.
