Gelatin fresco transfers are made by combining gelatin and water together. The mixture is heated, powdered marble added and then hand strained over wood that has been prepped by sanding and gessoing. After the 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.
This series is available in 10 or 20 inches square, with a depth of 2 1/2 inches. The sides are ivory. Each piece will have it’s own unique imperfections that occur during the gelatin transfer process.
