GELI PLATE PRINT MAKING

One of the fastest growing printmaking applications for making monoprints is using a geli plate. The cool thing about using this plate is that you can use any painting medium, but we will use acrylics. You will learn the basics of how to apply your paint, how to pull a print, how to make layered prints, how to clean up and store your plate. We will use different methods to make our prints such as stamps, stencils, image transfers, layering, and resist. It’s such an interesting way of making prints, background papers or cards. No experience necessary just bring an open mind. Ask for a supply list upon registration.
