Tania here to share a fun little project showing how I did some gel printing on recycled glass jars and bottles.
To start off, I painted an old jar and bottle that I had been saving for craft projects. I used gesso, but I would suggest using a glass friendly primer paint instead as it would stick to the glass better.
After letting the paint dry, I began gel printing on to the bottle and jar using a variety of tools, stencils and found objects!
You can lift up the gel plate to press it into any nooks and crannies of the glass jar and bottle.
I was lifting some of the excess paint off my brayer and gel plate on to my art journal, so I had some pages ready to work on when I feel like it.
After I was done, I sealed the jar and bottle with gloss acrylic spray sealer suitable to use on glass.
