I tried some more prints with the gelatine plate today. I was trying some capelin that I defrosted but they were still a little too cold and damp to work well so I hunted in the barn for other things and while filling up the water bucket for Lucky and BD I picked up a few of their feathers and thought I'd try them.
These are the results. They do make great imprints for the plate and I loved that turquoise blue colour as the base, providing contrast but not too strong.
One other print from last night's gyotaku prints with the star fish didn't work out as well as I wanted, so I played around with adding some colour to it today. Shots of bright pigment in watercolour overlaid the original acrylic. Despite the dark blobs of original error, I like the potential for adding additional colour overlays for these prints.
I've put a few of the pieces up on Etsy for sale.
