The bubbling effect was due to washing the gelli plate, resulting in water displacement. Although annoying, i realised this happy accident had revealed a new way to create texture so was very successful.

Negative and positive inking show similar marks in design but very different results in the overall effect.
Pear netting has generated interesting marks, that look like fish scales. As it’s flexible it could be inked and wrapped around an object rather than flat.
gummed paper leather
The print onto the leather is reflective of the gummed paper print, but it has an added quality where the leather has stretched due to the wetness of the ink. It has distorted the leather outwards, giving dimension and was very successful.

Further examples of printing
Further examples of printing were done, but weren’t as effective as the some of the first ones done. I think this was either the colour choice was not right or the composition was not balanced.
