Enhance your art by adding a layer of monoprinted sheer fabric, such as organza or habotai silk! -- Layering Gelli® printed sheer fabrics as a collage element can add depth to your artwork. Whether you work on journal pages, cards, canvas, fabric collage, art quilts, watercolors, or mixed media — adding your own translucent monoprinted fabric gives it a different look!
Instead of using a brayer to apply paint to the Gelli® plate, let's change it up and use a palette knife and various scrapers! Applying paint to your Gelli plate using alternative tools—such as a palette knife, old credit card or a smooth silicone scraper—gives you the opportunity to make unique marks.
As you can see—putting your brayer aside and experimenting with palette knives and scrapers can broaden your monoprinting experience and bring new excitement to the process! It's always exciting to try new techniques. Change is good!
