Photo Friday : Circles I
Today's image comes from the amazing Dale Rollerson. You can find her blog, and more of her work,
here. She works a lot with spun bonded fabrics; this piece is Evolon. She says of this particular piece;' I have monoprinted with the Gelli plate using acrylic paint and stencils – Evolon takes colour so well. I plan to stitch on it before too long' I'm hoping she'll send me a follow up image when she has stitched this incredibly richly coloured piece, and keep us appraised of the progress of the series.
So there I was thinking, what's a Gelli plate? I'd never heard of them, so had a look at their website . They make a gel printing plate that looks like gelatine, but is reusable. It sounds fab...want one...but until one of us has a paying job, I'll settle for gelatine printing, as I have several packets of gelatine in the kitchen cupboard. I found a video on U Tube showing how it's done; please note that the video is the copyright of the original artist, and has nothing to do with Spunbond Sensations!.
Many thanks to Dale for sharing this with us; if you have work at any stage of development that you want to share with us, please contact me here
