Trying a Photo Transfer on a Gelli Plate Print

I saw a video about doing photo transfers on to previously printed colored paper from the Gelli plate prints. So I thought I would give it a try. The video showed transferring photos of people’s faces but I decided to try a photo of branches against a winter sky. I did have to fiddle around with the photo to get it more black and white and then I printed it on regular computer paper. I then put matte medium on the photo and on to the printed gelli print. After messing around with getting rid of the extra computer paper with water and rubbing, I finally got it to work. Here’s the card I made.

I really like the photo so I think I will try making a few more of these. Hopefully, the process will get better with a little practice. Have a good weekend!
