Basics – Media That Can Be Used On The Gel Plate, pt. 3 – Wet Products – Birgit Koopsen for Gelli Arts®

Hi there and welcome to the Gelli Arts® blog!

Today I’m sharing with you another “Basics” video.

This one is all about wet products that you can use on the gel plate.

With wet products I mean products that don’t dry on the gel plate. Most of the time they will be water-reactive but there are stamping inks that don’t dry on the plate (or it takes a very long time) yet, once they dried on the paper they are permanent.

The difference with dry products is that you don’t need a second layer to pull the print,

the print will be pulled straight from the plate. In this episode I’m focusing on (water-reactive) stamping inks, watercolours and combinations

of these two.

I’m using 200gr/90lbs copier paper for my prints but it will be fun to experiment withdifferent

types of paper. The wet products will soak in differently in other types ofpaperand give

a different look.

 This video is only covering a part of the wet products you can use.

Next month I will show more wet possibilities on the gel plate.

Check out the Gelli Arts® YouTube channel for more “Basics” videos.


Thank you for stopping by and happy printing!
