Gelatin prints again

The first one shows what can go wrong, I didnt position one of my cirles correctly and was left with a white area on one of the pears which I then tried to paint in and it didnt work.
My gelatin has fallen in a bit of a heap and I am trying to see if re constituting it will help.
I was busy cutting out houses and pears and leaves and a bug.
It really is huge fun but I think next I will try with fabric paints and fabric.
I will be in Adelaide for tomorrow and Thursday so probably wont bog. Thursday is the eye specialist, I amn in a bit of fear and trepidation about what he will say but glad to be finally getting to him.

I am just fascinated by all your gelatin prints, Penny. I can't get enough of them.

Good luck with your appointment with the eye specialist, Penny.

Hello Penny,
What interesting results from this technique, and very professional looking. You can't get texture like that with ordinary painting!

Hi Penny, thanks for visiting my blog. I love your sketches and these gelatin prints are really interesting. Aren't you good having two blogs. My one takes up all my time...lol. I have floaters in my eyes too and they are a real nuisance. Perhaps I should consider laser surgery.

These gelatin prints are amazing. It inspired me to look up the process and it sounds like so much fun! One night I will make the jello tray...and during the day when I have free time I will surely give it a try! Thanks for showing them!!!
