Two weeks ago, I joined Linda Germain at her Haverhill studio for a day of gelatin printing on paper. I learned that printing on paper is a whole different animal from fabric work.
Each student got a private table, with plenty of room for a large palette, a gelatin plate, multiple brayers, and piles of paper. We had free reign with supplies: stencils, found objects, stamps, paints and papers, even a moldy gelatin plate.
I came home with an armload of attempts and a brain on fire with ideas.
So now what? Frame? Make books? Work back into them?
Tear them up and collage? Or print some more?
