I’ve got two brand new workshops this spring using the Gelli Plate®! I’ll be teaching both of these at Artsicape in Columbus, OH plus I’ll be demoing with the plate at the Friday Kick Off party. If you’ve never been to Artiscape, it has the most wonderful creative vibe. I’m counting down the days until April 22-24th and hope to see you there!
Gelli-cious Gems from the Gelli Plate®: You’re making one-of-kind pendants from packing tape and a Gelli Plate®. You’ll get the no-fail secret recipe for how to make weathered artistic layers of paint and texture full of your favorite colors so that when you pull that tape off the plate it takes your breath away.
A bonus of the process is that you will create a stack of scrumptious colorful prints while prepping your plate for the tape transfer. Next, you’ll turn the colorful tape into pendants and customize the color of the bezels to match your unique gems so that when you walk out the door you’ll have 2 complete pendants each with 24” matching chains. One for you and one to give…or both for you!
Reverse Gelli Printing® with Silhouettes and Stencils: You’ll be making a plethora of prints using silhouettes and StencilGirl stencils on the Gelli Plate® in this technique based workshop. You’ll not only get hands-on play with a huge stash of stencils, you will also find out the whys and how’s of layering shapes and patterns on the plate using reverse printing.
How do you know which patterns to put together? How do you get a crisp and clear reverse stencil print? How do you embed an image in the paint on the plate so you get a complete composition in one pull? You’ll know after this workshop- plus lots of other tips and tricks for the Gelli Plate®! Of course, I am bringing all the stencils, a wide variety of papers for you to print on, and more.
