So, why not create (what I call) a few gel printed little scenes like I share in this video:
I like to cut the silhouettes out of copy paper. I usually cut freehand or use a roughly sketched outline. You can also use cutouts from magazines if you like. Basic shapes work well!
Adhere the hand-cut silhouettes (masks) to the print of your choice with repositionable adhesive.
And… start to print!
You can keep adding masks with every new print layer. However, remember that a print must be dry before adhering another mask on top.
Of course, you can also start with a fresh sheet of paper! And, if you want white elements in your print, it’s a good idea to mask off those parts first.
Don’t worry if a mask sticks to the plate. You can easily re-apply them.
Once you are happy with your gel printed scene, you can add details using your favourite pens, pencils, markers and crayons.
Have fun giving it a go!
