NEW TOOLS

Because of the influence of blogger, Derek Jones, and his use of the gel printing plate and Golden Open Acrylics to get some fabulous monoprints, I now have a new tool:


I purchased the small gel plate.  I'll let you know how it works for me.  I am not expecting the gorgeous results Derek has gotten, but I hope to have something interesting and creative soon.  Go over to Derek's blog and catch up while he's away - see some of the absolutely stunning work he's been doing!


I remember reading a book about making your own gel plates from jello - looked so messy and strange to me that I never did it.  This is so much better - and cleaner!

Have a creative and exciting day!

What fun, Rhonda! I so look forward to seeing what you do with your new toys! Have been dabbling in encaustic myself. Am not ready t ogo public yet, but oh, so much fun! Wouldn't it be great to have a cyber play date with all our new stuff?

Wow! Looks quite interesting and lots of fun :) Derek's work is stunning and I can see where mono prints send him off on quite a journey. Bet he's late for dinner a lot!

Thanks so much, Christiane, Dee, Pam, Kathryn and Sherry! Some prints to come soon :) Dee, good luck with the encaustics. I've seen some I really liked but most look too "soft" for me. Of course, I don't know anything about them.
