I’ve been Gelli® (used with permission from Gelli Arts® LLC) plate printing like crazy lately… I can’t seem to stop! It’s so much fun and very addictive. The possibilities are endless and once you begin, you lose track of time and space and all that seems to exists is paint and paper and stencils and brayers and a Gelli® plate! And when you do snap back from Gelli® Land you are surrounded by colorful papers everywhere! Oh the joy!!!
Printing on a Gelli® plate is basically monoprinting, except that you can get more than one print from a single plate of paint… and you can make “ghost” prints. With all that said, you still get one original print each time, hence the term, monoprint!
Here’s my studio floor covered in prints!
Here are some process photos:
Here’s a whole lot of prints I made. Some are finished… some will get printed on some more… some will get collaged!
You end up making so many prints! I love monoprinting with the Gelli® plate. Have you ever tried it? If not, you just gotta!!!
For all you NOLA locals, I’ll be teaching a Gelli® plate printing class at Mo’s Art Supply in Covington on May 9… more details to come!
