I have been researching whether it is possible and efficient to utilize a gelli plate to transfer an image to leather hard or bisque clay. I am fascinated with layering and have used many standard techniques available. I am wondering if underglaze can be applied to the gelli plate then manipulated like one would to make a transfer. I imagine that if the underglaze can be kept wet enough, it can be transferred to newsprint or rice paper. I know I could do this without the gelli plate. I'm just wondering if there would be any advantage to using it?  If anyone has done this and can lend some advise, I'd appreciate it. Thank you.

Shawna Pincus in Baltimore does screen printing of underglaze onto a gelli plate, then rolls her clay piece over it. She is  @pinkkisspottery on Instagram. She's been doing that for years and has a good method. She has done lots of process videos.
