Gelatin plate

Today  I had heaps of fun in a Gelatin plate class with Michelle at Palmwoods.
I had been wanting to try this technique out for ages but never got around to it.
It is so easy.
Recipe for the plate is 4 tablespoons gelatin and mix with 1 cup of boiling water to dissolve. Add 1 cup of cold water and pour into an ice cream container or similar and place in the fridge to set.

Unmold and place some fabric paint on top ( you can use medium) and push it around to cover with the back of a plastic spoon.

Now you can put a stencil on top and paper over a couple of time to take the excess paint off. You can use this paper to make cards later.

Put your fabric on top the plate and light rub to transfer the paint. You will get a few off the one rubbing and you can also use the stencil by putting them on the fabric a few times. Each time you will get a lighter design but still lovely.

Keep stitching
