I found some old sewing patterns and used the images on the cover to cut some stencils for gelatin printmaking I thought the negative shapes and spaces would be stronger than they are but I guess they work. I photocopied the image and then printed it on to card stock. Then I put a couple coats of mat medium on both sides. That way the stencils will last and will not absorb lots of ink and water. I experimented with inking the stencil heavily and then positioning it on the plate of gelatin. I came up with a few prints that I like. More gelatin printing tips. www.linda-germain.com
