More gelatine print

I learned that the gelatine gets more interesting, when left for a week or so. But no one told me about the smell... but I overcame my resistance ;-) and placed new pieces of fabric on the painted gelatine... didn´t work out, I qualify them as quite boring...

The only one I liked, is the one with the orange net:

With the left-overs of thickened dyes, I made some nice cloth just by working with templates from Stewart Gill:

Will get rid of the gelatine and wait for my gelli plate to arrive ;-).

  2. I, too was wondering how long the gelatin plate would last before the smell came in. And a question..did the resulting fabric carry the bad smell?
