Gelli Arts® + Liquitex® Collaboration – Portraits by Alexa Doebler

Hello everyone! Alexa here to share my project for our Gelli Arts®️ & Liquitex® Collaboration. Plus-read to the end of the blog to enter for a chance to win a prize pack from Liquitex® and Gelli Arts® and get 20% any order on!

Using Liquitex® Basics paint, I was able to create gorgeous, vibrant painterly portraits on my
Gelli®️ plate. Check out the process here:

To create these portraits, I simply painted
directly onto my Gelli®️ plate using Liquitex® Basics paint. I started with Mars
Black to create my outlines.

Then, once that dries, fill in the color.

Next, use the Liquitex® Basics Transparent Mixing
White over all the layers once dried. Roll it on with a brayer & remove
until you have a nice thin layer.

Then, lay your Gelli®️ plate onto your
paper. Press firmly & leave it to sit for about 5-10 minutes. Slowly, pull
your Gelli®️ plate, easing it away from the paint that is now on your paper.

And you’re done!
