I’ve noticed a lot of interest in teaching Mono-printing this school year. There has been much discussion about how expensive commercial gelatin plates are and how the kids damage them. I have been using these faux gelatin plates for the past 2 years and really like them. They are 12” square so there is plenty of room for the paint and most sizes of paper. They resist damage and are easy to clean. Like Gelatin Plates, you can make mono-prints with inexpensive acrylic/tempera paints. They can be cut with a utility knife or good scissors if you want to re-size them.
I will be listing a mono-printing lesson plan and instructional video soon.
Mono-prints make great backgrounds, collage papers, covers/pages for handmade books, etc)
$95 per set of 15, plus free shipping. (That is only $6.33 per plate, which is 1/5th the cost of a commercial Gel plate)
