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!

What type of paper was used?
She is printing on her journal which looks like thicker cardstock pages.
