Dachshunds, Duos and Brazil

Here are a few new gelatin prints – some ideas are works in progress. It usually takes 20-30 images before I get it down. That means I have 25 to go for the Dachsies and boucoup for the Duets. I’m up for it!

Gelatin Plate Printing

To all my adoring fans… I’m sorry that it’s been so long since i posted. I won’t go into the drama of my life except to say I am ‘between jobs’ and that sucks. BUT it does allow me to explore my studio a bit deeper and I’ve been deeply into Gelatin Plate Printing. Here are a few samples from the last month of work. I have some very hot prints that have not been photo-documented yet. I’ll post them later.

Gelatin Plate printing is a mono-printing process that uses a plate made out of… GELATIN!

Gelatin Plate (L) with Ink template, paper and ink roller (R)

The plate is inked with water based relief printing ink

A stencil (shown) or even natural objects like grass, leaves, or stems are laid on the inked plate

Paper is laid on, pressed by hand, and removed. This is the first or original print

The stencil is removed, revealing the 'Ghost' print (this is the juicy stuff)

By layering ink colors and different stencils or shapes, the print becomes very deep and textured. Here are some samples:

Mediation: an early piece with stems, yoga stencil and things

OCEAN I

The Gelatin Plate will eventually degrade - become pitted, cracked and moldy. This only adds to the texture and surprise of the image. This is a good example of a degraded gelatin plate surface
