Ferns give good prints

This is a blechnuum (ladder fern) The print on the right is with the fern on the tissue and rolled over with a semi hard brayer on topof the geli plate. The light print in the middle is cleaning up the geli plate after the first print and the print to the left is where I have rolled ink directly onto the leaf and then printed the leaf itself onto the tissue. Remember I am want some areas of dark and some of light for the compositions so playing with positive and negative prints is a means to an end
