Gel plate printing

I've recently being watching lots of You Tube videos at night, instead of watching pointlessTV.

I came across Jane Davies, who has some interesting sketchbook videos. I particularly liked her gel plate printing one


And as impatient as ever, I couldn't wait to buy a proper Gelli Arts gel plate on-line (you can get them http://intaglioprintmaker.com/ or http://www.afth.co.uk/) so I made one using gelatine (see how here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZgBkBv8y5s) and the results were really interesting. 

I need more gelatine and a bigger tray (and no child trying to "help" and digging things into the delicate gelatine!) and would like to experiment more with other colours & techniques.
