Over the weekend I have played with some of Anne Bagby’s techniques for printing paper. She uses bookbinder’s tissue paper and deli paper, neither of which I have, and prints directly onto the paper whereas, mostly, I adapted some of her ideas to use with the gelli plate.
I liked her way of mixing colours to avoid poster paint bright colours and she has some other good methods, in summary she is very professional, knows what she is talking about and her DVDs are packed with information. Basically I have just been having fun.
I used drawing paper, copy paper and some baking parchment. I particularly liked the way of raising an image off the surface by gluing it onto fun foam.
