I’ve been gelli plate printing for awhile now and have found I really like the second or the ghost image better than the original. I thought it would be fun to put together a short video for those of you who haven’t tried printing with these plates. I’m using textile paints on fabric, but this would also work with regular paints on paper. I’m also using those stencil masks I made and posted about here.
Here are the two prints side by side. I like the first print, but think the second one has more character.
I continue to collect more and more of these prints. Now to decide what to do with them!
Don’t forget to enter my blog anniversary giveaway.
Wonderful lesson! They are beautiful!
How lovely, I did try and comment on the speakery thingy, but I couldn’t get it to work for me.
Did you take off the stencil for the 2nd print? Just wondering how the stencil image is darker on the 2nd print. Judy
Great tutorial, Lynda! I really love your stencils, and see that you are having lots of fun using them with your gelli-art plate!
Hi Judy, Yes. Were you able to see the video? In the video I show taking off the stencil masks for the second or ghost print.
Hi Kathy, Thanks. Sorry to hear the Speakery thing didn’t work. I’ll check it out.
Great tutorial! Love your stencils and prints. I’m having fun with my home made Gel plate and fabric. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for the video. I ordered a gelli plate yesterday and am looking forward to trying it.
