Many years ago, I took a class on gelatin mono-printing. Fun, but messy!
Then, a company invented a new way to achieve the same results but with a plate you didn't have to make (you know I don't cook!), didn't deteriorate after using and could be stored and taken out to use at a moment's notice! The Gelli Plate!
And now, they have introduced larger sizes which is more to my liking. I just received the 9"x12" plate today. You can bet tomorrow, I will be experimenting with my acrylics and other media to print on paper and fabric.
Gelli Arts is a woman-owned business (as you know, supporting these kinds of businesses is my passion!) and, FYI, I have no financial relationship with them. I just love their products and wanted to share with my readers.
They have a lot of helpful videos on their website to demonstrate how to use Gelli plates to create art in both paper and fabric. I'll share my own experiments in a new blog in about a month. Stay tuned!
