Love Making Monotypes on the Gel Plate
But You’re Disappointed?!
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:
Now, after Make Monotypes, I know how to create the effects and results that I want. The glycerin and gelatin recipe is much stronger and longer lasting.
I expected one lesson a week and was surprised by the 5 short lessons each week. I could better absorb all the information and practice everything.

It was the best six weeks I can remember ever having in February! Linda’s preparation and planning for the printmaking course were flawless, and if we still had questions about the process, she never hesitated to think of different ways of explaining it. I loved finding that there were participants from all over the world. It was a truly rich experience! The class left me with a huge curiosity about what I can now do on my own. Printmaking will continue to be a huge part of my art-making! Just that I’m very grateful for Linda’s consideration, sensitivity, and sense of humor.
