Trying out plexi...
So, I want to go bigger than the largest Gelli plate so decided to try plexiglass. I bought an 18x24 piece from the hardware store and used my Akua inks. The Akua inks are supposed to stay wet until they are applied to paper but interestingly enough that didn't seem to be the case. It also came out spotty as you can see from my below prints. Golden Paints performed better so researching. I also have to say I like the give in the Gelli plate better too so I may have to get a really large jelly or cake pan and make my own. Wonder how large I can go? I'll keep you posted but if anyone knows let me know.
By day I work with computer software at a law firm and by weekend I'm exploring my creative side. You know, mixed in with all the other stuff you have to do on the weekend like the laundry. I love reading blogs and seeing all the beautiful artwork. I love how encouraging and friendly the community is. Please feel free to leave a comment even if it is just to say hi.
