Over the last week or two, I have been engrossed in gelatin printing. I have amassed over 100 prints, a few of which I will take further, and many of which will become journal fodder. I won't go into detail about the process, but you can watch Julie fei fan Balzers recent video for some pointers
So let's have a look at a few butterflies.
The second was the positive butterfly print, then third, was the black print.
I think that is enough for today, but as you can guess, I have a lot more to post. I even got to brinting on fabric and have started work with those prints on the sewing machine.
My husband wanted to know what I would do with so many prints, but really, I am not actually concerned about that. This is another example of the artistic process bring about the process, not the product. In making so many prints on so many different papers with diffferent layers and different colours, I have learnt a lot in a short time about colour mixing, layereing, contrast, and value that even if I never used any of the prints, it was still worth it. I will talk more about that inmy next posts.
