Gelatin print American flags

I'm hooked on gelatin printing ever since learning the process from the book Playing with Surface Design. And this time of year I'm always inspired to play with the American flag. As I've explained in a previous post the gelatin is used as a printing base. It is not what is producing the color of the print... though I like to imagine these flags where made with the classic patriotic Jell-o deserts I never had as a kid.

I cut out stars and striped paper masks to create the flag prints.
