I decided to try something a little different, so collected a canvas from the bears' veritable stash. First I blobbed some camouflage colours onto the Gelli plate and brayered away.
Then I took a huge piece of bubble wrap, and pressed it into the paint.
When I removed the bubble wrap, I had a surplus of paint left on it and, keen not to waste it. I pressed it onto a spare piece of card in a very satisfying way. You should have heard the popping explosion - Podgy almost rocketed out of bed!!
Here's the paper bubble print.
Working quickly to make sure my painted Gelli plate didn't dry. I placed my canvas directly onto the plate. I worried My paws wouldn't apply even pressure to the canvas, and as I wanted to ensure an equal spread of paint, I came up with an innovative solution to my conundrum....
Ooh, Gelli canvas, how furbulous is that? I'll have to ask Wilbear to take us on a bears outing to Duxford War Museum, so we can get some military themed photos.
Of course, once I'd started on the Gelli printing, I got a little carried away, addicted? Me? Sorry, can't answer that, too busy Gelli printing!!!!
