"Gelli Plate Printing"
March 10, 2023
 

Gelli plate printing is a fun and accessible way to create beautiful multilayered mono prints that can be used in your next mixed media art project or stand as a piece of artwork on their own. In this class you will learn how to create bands of color and texture and develop your images with stencils, stamping and drawing. Prints are made with acrylic paint and a gelli plate. This gelatinous slab allows you to create beautiful mono types without a press. Unlike traditional woodblock printing, this is not a precise practice and often the results are surprising adding to the fun. Come to appreciate the beauty found in the imperfect and unexpected! All materials included.
