I love gelatin monotypes and my friends requested a day of it. Here they are, in Andy's studio. L to R: Susie Clark (in the back) Andy Hein, Helen Shafer Garcia, Pamela Underwood and Jill Hall
When I got home, I selected one of my prints on fabric to begin sewing on. The pic on the right is from the back, some free motion machine stitching.
Here's the work in progress~ adding some hand stitching. Okay, a lot of hand stitching.
I'll be teaching a day of this, gelatin monoprinting, at the Long Beach Quilt Festival on July 29th.
Remember my fabric vase tutorial? Suzanne Stewart followed it and made a beautiful vase to go with her table runner. Check out her work here.
I tried the gelatin monoprinting. Once. Yuck. Clearly I just didn't have the vision. Yours are lov-er-ly. I will have to try again.ReplyDelete
Ah, Jane, these are fabulous and I'm sorry to say that I'm lime green with envy (tee hee) that I couldn't be there.ReplyDelete

Oh I do ADORE gelatin Monoprints!! I love to teach the process too!!!ReplyDelete
My only problem is bieng able to stop and I ususally keep the gles covered and stored in the Fridge for at least 3 weeks!!! Then there is the problem with where to put them all as they dry!!! In spring I drape them over the bushes in the yard!!!
Great pieces being made more fabulous by your glorious stitch work!!!
