Gelli Printing

From Mixed Media

Finally broke down and purchased a Gelli printing plate. Think I felt the need to get ready for my selected workshops (signed up for 2 fabric painting sessions) at this year’s Quilt Festival.

My first afternoon I felt as though I was all thumbs or maybe no thumbs! The second afternoon I was starting to fell much better about the process.

Think I’m getting myself ready for a day-long marathon. This is really very fun. My very favorite Golden Acrylics were used as the medium. I used the Heavy Body, the Fluid and the new High Flow acrylics. The different formulas work very well together. Beautiful colors and great to work with.

These prints were all done on paper. Did a test on some thin cotton. Think I’d prefer a more substantial and tightly woven broadcloth. Will keep you posted on the fabric results.
