A few new Gelli backgrounds...

Can't seen to stay away from that Gelli plate! Made these tonight... wanted to use some orange on one of the paintings and decided to also do a little gelli printing.

3-2-13 backgrounds

I really like how the orange one made shapes through the stencil (roundish holes) as it pulled up from the plate.

  1. You should print those at Spoonflower - they would make great fabric designs!

    1. Thanks Jane!
      A gelli printing plate is a gelatin like surface that you put paint on and then paper over and pull it up to get a one of a kind print (monoprint). The reason the gelli plates are so cool is that they are not real gelatin so they don't mold and fall apart like real gelatin and you don't have to remake it every time you want to print something!
      Oh my you are in for a treat finding out about Gelli plates! Here is their web site: http://www.gelliarts.com/
      You can also check You Tube for a ton of videos about using them and some of the amazing things people are doing with their printing!
