Gelli Printing WORDS and a GOLDEN Giveaway (on blog)! Full blog post: www.gelliarts.blo.... Incorporating words into Gelli printing is easy and fun!

This video shares two easy techniques for making your Gelli-printed 'words' more reader-friendly! These are subtractive methods — meaning paint will be removed to create the letters.

"Plan B" Gelli Prints! Read More @ gelliarts.blogspo.... Sometimes when you're Gelli printing you'll pull a print and observe a very cool design left on the plate. Sometimes this residual layer of paint will allow for the opportunity to pull an interesting second (ghost) print. And sometimes the paint remaining on the plate is too dry or too thin to pull a good ghost print. So you wipe the plate, or apply fresh paint and keep printing. C'est la vie!
Are We There Yet? Read more @ gelliarts.blogspo... This time Joan Bess experiments with adding more color! Acrylic paint will act as a resist to many mediums. So, the idea is to apply color to a dry print, then wipe it off with a damp paper towel (baby wipes would work too) to reveal the original paint. The added color remains in the bare paper areas and makes the print "pop"!
Watch Your Back! gelliarts.blogspo.... In our last blog post we talked about using different media to add color to Gelli prints that aren't quite "there yet". What wasn't mentioned is that there's "another side" to the story. Literally! In this technique, where the print surface was saturated with dye, the color seeped right through the paper to the back. And the acrylic paint from the original Gelli print created a resist! Talk about a cool effect!!!
