gelli prints

Wtih this week being devoted to staying around while new roof is installed, I decided it would be fun today to play with gelli plates.    

 Here is one little group os things.     First pull was just the blues for a background. 

The plate was nearly dry and there was a lot of paint left, so I painted over it with some yellow and white and brayered it down again.    While it was wet I dragged the end of my paint brush through to make simple designs of faces, then pulled another print.  This time it picked up the lower level of the blue for the lines.   

Third  pull brought up the rest of the blues and whatever wax dried on the plate previously, and left the lines white, as that paint was pulled up in the previous pull.
