Gelatin Printmaking

I'm printing tomorrow with some friends. We're going to collaborate on prints--print one, rotate, print on someone else's, rotate, print on someone else's, END. I'm really excited about it, though now I need to make the gelatin plate and I really just want to go to Flatbed Press to see Peter Leighton's show. Luckily this won't take long. If you are interested in gelatin printmaking, check out Linda Germain's awesome video's on You Tube. Here are links to two good how-to videos. Gelatin is nasty, but if you can get beyond that, it's a fun project to do with kids or with other adults. The results are too awesome to print alone--trust me, you'll want to share!
