Bess explains how to create prints using gelatin plates--Gelli Plate is her brand of a non-perishable plate. After a chapter on getting started, she surveys such techniques as creating a multicolored print, working both sides of the stencil, textured rollers, the painterly print, faux paste papers, moldable foam stamps, overdyed prints, salvaging the uninspired print, negative painting on a print, texture plates, and the additive method for printing. She includes a gallery of prints by other artists. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
