Cut a piece of cardboard to the size you want your printing plate to be. This is called the substrate. Select a piece of cardboard the same size as or slightly larger than the substrate, and put it aside. This is called the template.
Old-fashioned cut and paste I am an old fashioned cut and paste girl when it comes to making. At times, I wish I were a modern graphic designer girl who could do all the whizz-bangery that would see my plans and designs appear magically and perfectly on the screen; that would let me move things around and change colours and the look and feel of everything.
But alas no, I am not that woman. And I don't really think I will ever be - I doubt I have the energy to study and learn in depth what I would need to know in order to do this.
So instead, I sit, I draw, I cut, I paste. I move things around. I stick things together and I blu-tac them to the windows!
This work is all part of the design work for the windows of a new building in Melbourne. I am learning heaps as I basically design and then commercialise my work. As ever, my work is slow and I sit and I think, and I calculate and measure and plan and hope and test and try and I wrote some words and placed them on pages indicative of the size of the windows then laid them out on the studio floor to check.
Then I stuck a few on the windows to check size and how they looked. Then I moved back to the house to do the serious number-crunching!
And laid them out on the floor there - this time having prepared pages that were the exact size of each window each window is a different size and added diamonds to break up the words and make them easier to read.
Part A is about having two lines of words running across the seven windows You can see how I even cut and pasted the paper to make the background pages the right size!
And then it was back to measuring and calculating. This is after I wrote every word out, scanned it saved, it cleaned it up and then taught myself how to vectorise it so that I can send the files to the printers and they can cut the lettering out.
Laying them out to get a feel for the spacial balance, the word length balance, the height balance and the 'having the right words in the right place' kind of balance as well.

And then I measured how high above the centre and how far below the centre each word should be - and how far in from the left hand hand side of the window. I need to send the printer a placement-layout Schedule as well as they will attaching the words to the windows and I want them to put them in the right place.
Lots of detailed measurements and writing. These are all my sketches and notes to myself - next I have to type up and prepare the schedules for both Part A and Part B - four schedules.
I am sure it will all happen if I am patient, take my time and double-check everything. If I was doing a proper and through step by step of the process, there would be another 3 blog posts needed to capture it all I think - I just thought to myself a lot about cutting and pasting as I did this work and thought I'd share my old fashioned ways!If you or your students do not have prior knowledge of creating monoprints with a Gelli plate and need a tutorial, you can check out a video I created right here.
