I am so new that I dont know the lingo…what is a mask?

It is something that blocks – if you put paint on the plate and put a MASK over it, when you pull a print the area that is MASKED will have no paint – it will be whatever the paper is you used to pull the print.

Saw this page and thought I would add another great tool — toilet paper rolls! Attach them with paper clips to make any shape!
Here is a pic of what I made for my gelli plate printing: http://www.flickr.com/photos/51050313@N05/9420860003/

Interesting! I have used paper towel core tubes and wrapping paper tubes, singly, to make circles but never thought to join them in that way. Nifty!
Thanks for sharing 🙂
