Gelli Printing on Fabric

Inspiered by http://andthenwesetitonfire.blogspot.de/ I've made another gelatin printing plate and tried some prints on white fabric. My first tries where with fabric paint but the paint didn't work well on the gelatin. I haven't an opaque paint so I switched over to acrylic paint. Then it worked well.

on the left side arose the shapes of two persons - developed from the handling of my brayer

to remove the paint from the printing plate I used deli papers - and got great ghost prints for my art journal
