wonderful leaf stamp that was used to take paint off the plate- thus leaving the impression of the stamp, some unraveled polyester yarn, a lace doily and some loose threads taken form the edge of a piece of fabric). This would then be called print #1.
Lynette cut her own masks from paper and laid them down on the gel pate so some of her patterning from print #1 would be protected by the new masks. It is always such a fun moment to lift off that second print and see what the results are. Lots of Oh's and AHHHH's!! Such wonderful fun!
After the first print, and the removal of the masks covering the painted plate, there will be paint left behind on the plate. A second print can be done at this time and this print is called a Ghost Print and is often my favorite print. The Ghost Print is always so very detailed,subtle and elegant.
This is one of my favorite Ghost Prints generated that day.
