Gel Print from Quilted Lutradur pt1



Here is another way to create a unique print on fabric or paper. Note that it will be a reverse image of the quilted top.
First I painted and heat distressed a piece of heavyweight (100 gram) lutradur, then sandwiched it with two pieces of cotton and a piece of cotton batting, then free motion quilted it.
Next I spread acrylic paint on my Gel plate and laid the back side of the art quilt down on the plate, rubbed with my hands but could have used a brayer. Then lifted the art quilt off which left an impression on the gel plate. Then I placed a piece of fabric on to the plate, rolled with the brayer and carefully lifted the fabric off revealing a piece of printed fabric I will use in another art piece. I did it once more using a bit less paint (Textile paint this time) and the quilting lines showed up even better.
