I Don’t Clean Windows or my Gelli Plate

A Colorful Gelli Print Party at aColorfulJourney.com with Carolyn Dube

Join me for a Colorful Gelli Print Party!

It’s day 6 of the party and I am not cleaning for it!  I don’t like to clean. I really don’t like to clean.  Just ask my long suffering teens who have to do dishes and sweep and do laundry!  So I find it joyful when I don’t need to clean my Gelli Plate! For those of you who like to clean the dried acrylic paint comes right off with water.
I built up the layers of paint by printing but not pulling up all the ghost prints that I could have. That leaves traces of paint each time. By the time of the video I had approximately 10ish layers of paint on there but it is not like there is a law about how many layers to use.  You can use whatever makes you happy – and isn’t the point of arting?

I wish I could tell you that I planned all these layers carefully and knew exactly what was going to show up on each print but I can’t.  It is random and exciting.  The more layers of paint the more depth to the grunge that gets pulled up onto the paper.

    Well, now, that’s how that done. I was wondering. I had heard about it. That first lift was my favorite. I tried to put my link it, but it would take. Still has my first post. Sigh.
