Gelatin fresco transfers are made by combining gelatin, powdered marble, gel medium and water together. The mixture is heated and cooled and hand strained over wood that has been sanded and gessoed. After the gelatin mixture has cooled, a transfer film with ink is rolled over the surface. The gelatin pulls the ink from the film and transfers the image onto the wood. The end result will be a beautiful aged look as drying takes place and some cracks appear. The imperfections are what makes each one unique and adds character. After drying for several days the pieces are sealed multiple times.
Every fish is hand done on a 10 x 23 inch box with a depth of 2 inches. After the boxes are sanded and prepped, the transfer is poured. After drying for several days, the gelatin transfer is sealed and the sides of the box are finished with a beautiful ivory color paint.
Each piece is unique and has it’s own personality. They render beautiful imperfections and a vintage appearance.
