Highlights from Jello Printing and Stamping Workshop
Seven of us had a great time on Saturday, June 27 playing with jello. Using gelatin as a large stamp pad and acrylic paints as the medium, we printed, stamped, rolled, scrunched and just about everything we could think of to create some great fabric pieces. Once we got going, there was no stopping the experimentation. My personal favorite "stamp" was the imprint from the bottom of a wine bottle that Ginny brought. Karen Tornow brought a wire rack and Virginia had a sink strainer that made great grid imprints. Karen Miller had several rollers with interesting imprints. Foam stamps work really well with this process. We used bubble wrap and rubbing plates and scrunched paper to make patterns. Several people brought leaves and flowers to use for imprinting.
