Monoprinting with Shimmerz Part 2

Hi again Ladies.

Welcome to Part 2, with a couple more techniques, monoprinting with Shimmerz!
So much fun.

Now if you do not have a gelli plate, you can actually make your own. There are a couple of good website for making a Gelatin Printing Plate and it requires you to mix 2 Tablespoons of Gelatin to each 1 cup of water. This produces a nice thick gel for you to mono print on. Just the same as what I have been doing here.

 From what I have seen, just keep it a smaller size rather than trying for the whole cookie sheet size, as it can crack and damage, or come out uneven depending on what you are putting it in.
 Any way, have a look at this video.... HERE or this WEBSITE.  Very cool. You probably have gelatin in your kitchen right?
 Have fun, and I will be back tomorrow with some more ideas.... Thanks for stopping by!
