Love Making Monotypes on the Gel Plate
But You Want better Results!
Give yourself the right tools, lots of practice, quality support and
you will gain confidence, build solid skills, and create beautiful prints.
You’ve heard all about gelatin printing. You’ve seen the YouTube videos and know how easy it looks. You may have even made the gelatin plate, but had it fell apart or spilled all over the counter. You feel like you failed at something that looks so easy.
Now success is within your reach:
Prior to this class, I had been working primarily with the acrylic paint on the commercial gelatin plate. The best thing was learning how to work with printmaking ink on the homemade gelatin and glycerin plate.
Linda is an excellent teacher who is very well organized. She breaks everything down into easily digestible bits of information. Her genuine passion for the art form is inspiring.
