So after my last gelatin printmaking flop-a-rino I tried again. I left my gelatin in the pan this time...why not my paper was smaller than the pan anyway.
I smushed out some ink, brayered it and rolled it onto my gelatin. Then I laid some dried grass thingys on it and then the paper. It came out weird. So I removed the grass and laid a new paper on it...hum not so bad.
Next I used a different color and kind of laid the grass on it and took it off and then laid the paper. And I did that a couple / few times. It was okay, not the greatest, but okay.
I tried some other texturing things
I'm just not feeling this type of printmaking you know. I mean I don't feel excited about it at least not enough to continue experimenting with it. Not right now anyway. No I don't think this is an art failure, it is something I tried and how are you supposed to know if like something or not if you never try it.
Attempting is not failing. What have you attempted lately?
