Plunked down the money and bought a Gelli Plate. While similiar to prepared gelatin printing plates (from unflavored gelatin) it is not the same. The Gelli Plate is firmer and seems to dry out the paint faster than a gelatin plate. Ghost images (second pulls) don't seem to happen but the Gelli Plate does makes some great textures and detailing. I'm not unhappy with it and think it deserves more exploration. Onward!
