Product Description

Product Description

If you like the layers used in mixed media art – especially distressed-look layers – you will love using a gelli plate: a reusable, durable gel printing surface used mainly with acrylic paints.

If you are familiar with gelli plates and have your own, you may enjoy the freedom of making your own plate and incorporating your favorite scent and even a touch of glitter or other personalizations. You could make gelli plates to give as gifts, or host your own gelli printing party for little expense.

And if you just don't want to spend the money on a commercial gelli plate and all its fancy accessories, you will love the frugal options this book presents.

Finally, if you have already tried to make your own gelli plate and failed – or you can't stand the smell of the alcohol used in most recipes – then you will love the 2-ingredient recipe presented here, along with an encouraging troubleshooting guide.

And that's just the first two chapters!

Over 60 color photographs and descriptive text demonstrate how to make and use a gel printing plate.
Whether you own the book or not, you may view over 20 of the photos from the book at full resolution on the author's website:

Here you can find ideas for using a host of masks and texture materials, how to successfully combine layers… and browse through a gallery of gelli-printed pages created using the author's own homemade gel plates. Use this book for its ideas, as eye candy, or read and absorb the detailed descriptions of how each layer was created, in what order, using what materials, often even for what price in which store. We're all friends here, and there's no wrong art!

This book is only available through Kindle, but can be viewed on any PC with the free Kindle software.
