No, I have not gone completely around the bend and taken to posting pictures of pans of water.
I have been reading a lot lately about commercially available gelli plates. That got me to thinking about making my own plates. After poking around on Google (so much easier than having to go to a library and pour through card catalogs) I found a terrific blog Linda Germain has. It's filled with all sort of information, including instructions on making your own plates. I made mine in a silicon baking pan that I have hesitated to use for baking as I often bake at fairly high temps.
I'm not sure how I will use this, but I'm thinking of it as another way to make images to go on clay. I used to do a lot of silk screening, both for printmaking and for transfer to clay. This seems to be a good time to experiment as I have been doing some work in white earthenware with an eye to underglazing.
We'll see, Grasshopper......we'll see..............
Speaking of grasshoppers, does anyone else miss Robin Hopper's wonderfully informative blog posts? I notice lately that a lot of his books are being reprinted.
Sunny with a cool breeze .....just enough to make it uncomfortable to be outside. I go out for about twenty minutes and then come in. I am always surprised at how much can be accomplished in twenty minutes if one concentrates on the task at hand.
Enjoy the day and, as always, thanks for stopping by..........*s*
