Gelli Gelli Gelli

Learning how to use masks with Gelli printing... I printed a cat silhouette from the Internet, and cut it from plain printer paper to create a mask. Not all my attempts were successful - I had used a picture of Willow to start with, but his silhouette is more blob than cat.

I used black acrylic as my first layer, printed with a texture from my Dealz doilies. Then I spread red paint onto my Gelli plate before applying the cat mask. I'll definitely need to experiment more, but it's not a bad start.

And here is a detail from a print that I didn't think was quite as successful. What do you think?
