Gecko Prints

Aug 2, 2019 | colour, craft, Nature, Print, Uncategorized | 0 comments

I have been making unique print cards, with both a Gecko design and Guineau Fowl. I like the way that having created a plate I can ink it up however I want and print it alone or incoorporate it with other media or print elements.

I look for a main element that is clearly recognisable from its outline, trying to keep them relatively simple.

I like the way I can manipulate the inks to get such nice colours.

I have put this design onto some mirrors which I had painted to use for some nature prints. I like the way the geckos seem to be running round the mirror, just like they might if they were real!
