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!
