Translucent Overlays

26 Nov

caligo ghost 1

I’ve been experimenting with Gelli Art gelatine plates for printmaking again. This time I used Caligo Safewash oil-based printing inks mixed with extender to make them translucent and overlaid the monotype three times, once in Process Yellow, then Process magenta and finally Process Cyan. I’ll explain the process in tomorrow’s blog. This is one of the pieces that I liked best, it is delicate and the overlays have produced so many subtle colours. I’m trying out this process to see if it will produce interesting papers for collage.
