Gelli Arts® + Jane Davenport Gel Printing with Liquid Inks with Marsha Valk

Hi there! It’s
Marsha here. Today I have a new set of watercolour techniques toshowyou, using the brand new Jane Davenport seashell
mini printing plate and liquid inks!

You may be
thinking that like watercolour, liquid inks aren’t the most suitable medium for
Gelli Arts® gel printing. The viscosity is thin, and that causes the ink to bead
up on the slick surface of the gel printing plate.

However, with a
little experimentation, I’ve found a couple of ways around that, and I’m
excited to share them with you in this video!

In the
video, I’m printing with Jane Davenport INKredible Inks. These are dye-based
inks that behave like a watercolour. You can substitute them with watercolours
or other liquid non-permanent or semi-permanent inks

All
techniques shown in the video work with other Gelli Arts® mini printing plates
too.


I can’t wait to
see the liquid ink and watercolour prints you create! Please share your work
with us on Instagram using #gelliarts. 

Happy liquid ink
printing! 

-Marsha
