Debra works intuitively so her prints are spontaneous and experimental. Sometimes she will have a subject or object that she loves and will try to make this the focus in Her print.
The warm coloured background was printed first using the gel print technique. The dark floral feature was then printed on to gauze fabric, using real flowers with paint rolled on to them as a stamp. The inked flowers were then printed on to transparent gauze and when dry the printed fabric was glued to the coloured background.
Gel plate printing is a monoprint process. A soft plate is made from gelatin and glycerine. The mixture sets and then paints/inks can be rolled out across the plate. Textures can be added to the rolled ink. Masks, stamps and stencils can also be used. Interesting effects can be achieved by layering several prints over the top of each other. Once inked, the print paper is placed on top of the gel plate, pressure applied using your hands or a baren and as the paper is removed all the paint/ink is transferred to the surface of the paper.
