|©linda germain 2012 – gelatin monotype with stencil from photo reference|
Prompted by a question from a student, I have been experimenting with ways to use photos in gelatin printing. I the image above you can see the photo of my brother fishing on the pier. Just below that you can see the paper masking stencil that I cut and to the left a few of the gelatin prints that I made.
I am having fun with this! I used the registration method that I talked about yesterday. As you can see on the far right of the image above place a mat on the gelatin plate to create clean edges. Then line your paper up with the mat.
