A hectograph is a prepared gelatin surface from which images can be pulled. Originally it was used in the early 1900’s as a means of reproducing copies. Some people may remember them being used at schools or restaurants. A special carbon paper or copy pencil was used on paper, and would be placed face down on the gelatin pad which would receive the pencil. When another sheet was placed down, the image/text would print and transfer from the gelatin.
Learn how to make the HectoGel plate then transfer an inkjet image printed on the DASS Dual Film, using a photo gloss profile, to the gel surface.
Just lay the image on the gel plate and the image magically moves in 5-10 minutes.
Then hand paint the image in color and pull  off the painted print after applying printmaking paper or Reemay fiber.
