Ok, when I learned all about the printing trade in my early teens, a gelliplate didn’t exist. We used glass panes, perspex, polystyrene, wood and metal, foam and cardboard plus the traditional carved up potato! So, I’m delighted to share this experience with you of my first ever gelliprint portrait đŸ™‚
I prepared the gelliplate with a brayer and watercolours. Can anyone guess what object I used to provide a textured feature of the face?

Another bit of creativity today was making up a flat-pack paper storage unit for my print studio. The room isn’t large enough for a plan chest, but I do need somewhere to store my prints and paper or card flat. This was perfect
