Stamping with a Gelli Arts® Plate

 View a YouTube, discover fun ways to produce beautiful one-of-a-kind artwork with color and texture using the amazing new gel printing plate by Gelli Arts™as a stamp

     In the book ‘Gelli Printing’ there are many projects from talented and innovative guest artists. They show how to create bags, boxes, quilts, journals, and art works on canvas and paper.  You can use many types of acrylic paint, dozens of tools (many from your home), all types of paper and fabric.  Gelli prints are fabulous for creating papers for journals, collage and mixed media projects… you can add layer after layer using stencils, masks and mark making tools.
    One of my favorite ways to use my Gelli plate is as a stamp on watercolor paper. First I stamp, then I draw an image, such as the women pictured below, and glaze over the rest of the piece with transparent colors using Golden fluid acrylic paint colors. I have done several pieces using a similar process, including ‘Elephant Walk’.
First layer – use a Gelli plate as a stamp on watercolor paper, 22″ x 30″.
Second layer – I drew Women of the World’, then painted a transparent glaze over and around the figures.     
‘Elephant Walk’ – inspired by Gelli printing patterns as the first layer.
