Going Gocco!

Last month I did a short 'Gocco on Paper' workshop at Pine Street Gallery – it was so much fun!

I kept reading about Gocco printing on crafty blogs so I always wanted to learn a bit more about this super cool 70’s Japanese invention.

We were told to bring along a drawing or design so of course I left it to the last minute and quickly drew this little girl about an hour before the workshop …she looks so sweet in pink, blue and purple! I made quite a few printouts and stickers too…

Etsy has a quick how to video here where you can see the simple process!

There is also a Gocco category under paper goods - so many great designs. – im itching to buy a used Gocco machine so I can experiment more!

I love these two cards on Etsy below - both printed using Gocco Rorschach flowers by ShopPrettyThings – so elegant! and this adorable Retro birthday card by HelloJuliaMade
