Robayre100Days part 5

Day 44/100 #robayre100days did some more printing tonight but didn't hit the same groove from yesterday. I should have spent my time 1. cutting new stencils to truly get fresh materials or 2. drawing or painting over some of the prints I pulled yesterday

For the final installment of my 100 day project recap I’ll be covering my gelatin printing and work that came from that, over the 100 days

Day 45/100 #robayre100days cutting paper stencils

We'll see how this paper stencil goes #gelatinprinting #gelliplate #gelliarts

I just posted a bunch over on snapchat about the paper I use for cutting paper stencils. username : robayre (same as everywhere else) #gelatinprinting #gelliarts #gelliartsprinting #paperstencils #robayrepaperpiles

I have some catching up to do. Day 86/100 #robayre100days #robayrepatterns a new handcut paper stencil

From the get go, I’ve been working with my own hand cut paper stencils on the gelatin plate. I want the resulting work to be mine alone. Part of my interest in cutting comes from 7 years doing paste up at the local newspaper. I just may have been told I have a way around an Xacto knife! For a while I tried some acetate, but I think the fact that the plastic is non-porous, just resulted in prints I wasn’t too crazy about. Now I stick exclusively to paper or cardstock, but mostly paper. I’ve been printing for a few years now and still have all the stencils I’ve cut. The first few prints using a new cut stencil are very sensitive and fragile and could tear easily, but after you build up some coats of ink or paint, it makes the stencil stronger and stronger. I haven’t had to retire any yet!

Day 42/100 #robayre100days tonight I worked on some gelli prints because I want some fresh material for some #paperproducts. Fresh material = stuff to cut and paste. I'm kind of excited because I set up a table in the basement to work on, seeing as my wor

Day 63/100 #robayre100days I worked on some sewing and some printing and talked with some folks to work out some things about pieces in progress (thank you @shealwayslovedlarking and @murojewelry) but didn't really have a picture that captures that, so pl

#robayrestencilstack

Good morning! #robayrestencilstack #handcutstencil

Whenever I’m working on gelatin prints, the stencils will get new layers of color, so they are ever changing. As I flip through the folder I keep them in, I’ll notice beautiful compositions of color and pattern in the layers. I’ve been keeping a collection of these captured images at #robayrestencilstack  It is my hope some day to permanently adhere some of these, and either incorporate them into other work, or make them their own Art pieces. The only problem is that it means I’d have to remove them from my usable collection, and/or cut new ones to use again.

Today for #robayre100days I once again worked in my studio but don't really have anything to document and show. So I present to you this #robayrepaperpiles which still technically fits in with my paper theme. If you haven't seen it yet, don't miss the giv

scraps from collage cuttings

After 5 printmaking classes (serigraphy, lithography, relief, intaglio and an independent study) where I never really did monotypes or monoprints, I never really think of my gelatin printing as printmaking. But every once in a while when the color build u
