Rubbing Plates

Rubbing plates are double sided plastic plates, with each side producing somewhat different effects. They can be used as texture for a variety of techniques, including rubbings with paintstiks, transfer crayons or water color; foiling; gelatin prints; impressions in clay and more. All the rubbing plate samples shown below are done with iridescent paintstiks. For technique instructions, click here.
