PanPastel® + GelliArts®: Monotypes by Marsha Valk

Hi there! Gelli Arts® has teamed up with PanPastel® for
some printing fun, and I’m here today to share how I created a monotype using
PanPastels on a Gelli Arts® gel printing plate.

Plus- read to the end to enter for a chance to win a prize pack from Gelli Arts® and PanPastel®!

For the collaboration, each of the participating Gelli Arts® Artists
was gifted a set of PanPastel® colours and tools to play with.

PanPastel® has been a part of my art-making arsenal for
years now, but it wasn’t until recently that I tried them on my Gelli Arts® gel
printing plates.

What I especially love about using the pastels and gel
printing plate together are the painterly and soft blended effects you can


This makes PanPastel® the perfect medium for creating
monotypes in the sense of drawing or painting on a non-porous matrix and then
pulling a print.

Let me show you precisely what I mean!

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check the Gelli Arts® blog
every day of this week to see more PanPastel® and Gelli Arts® gel printing fun!
