Hi everyone and welcome to the Gelli Arts® blog!
It’s Birgit here today with another “Basics” video.
This time it’s all about the variety of products that you can use on the gel plate.
Although most people start out with acrylic paint, there are numerous media that can be used on the gel plate.
In this video, I show you how to use Pastels, Eye shadow, Solvent, Dye and Pigment inks and how to combine them.
The steps show how to apply these products but just as important, how to pull the prints.
Different than with wet products, like acrylic paint, you need a second medium to let the plate release the dry/dried product.
This can be a thin layer of paint, but could also be a thin layer of slow drying ink.
Got curious? Then check out the video and play!
This video is only covering a small part of the products you can use so you better start following us as there will be a part 2 next month and a part 3 after that and… 😉
Thank you for stopping by today.
