Wacky Animal Prints

I had fun creating more Gelli-Plate Prints recently for the online class with Carla Sonheim.

After making an animal head as a stencil, our assignment was to cut it into four unequal quadrants and make monoprints.

Like a puzzle, pieces could be added or subtracted on each layer so the final prints were a little bit of a mystery.

Next, we were to add paint pens to complete our animals.  I used Posca paint pens which are opaque and cover most surfaces.

Below is one wild hare print before and after the paint pens:

We had the option to add eyes or a nose so I also included a bow tie! 😃

Below is a pig I did – before and after:

And two more, they look like “party” animals to me!

I also created some face “masks” in spirit of Halloween.  I hope to post them tomorrow.

I hope these wacky animal prints give you a smile today!

Cheers! 🙂
