Gelli Printing on Fabric

Inspiered by 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
