some gelli printing techniques

Some techniques I’m using for the Christmas cards:

 Paper towel:
brayer paint on the plate and roll with paper towel over it, the print on the towel will transfer to the plate (added bonus: you'll have nicely colored paper towels to use in aanother project)



  Cling film: 
after applying paint to the plate place a piece of cling film over it and wrinkle it. You can use the same piece of film again and then paint will transfer from the film to your print, this creates a marble effect.



I glued small doilies on to a piece of paper and used this to create texture:



Then I took some lego of my son and created these prints. 



He wasn’t to amused when he saw the paint on his bricks, but after I let him play with it on the gelli plate it was ok J

  4. You had me at "lego". That is awesome. I like the 3D effect it gives.
