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!
