Can You Use Fabric on the Gelli Plate-YES! thumbnail

  Can you use fabric on the Gelli Plate? Absolutely!  For this month's Colorful Gelli Print Party I'm sharing how I print on fabric using the Gelli Plate.   The white fabric I used was very very affordable, actually might be called cheap.  I have used heavier fabrics and they work well also.

  What is the big deal about open acrylics and the Gelli Plate?  I didn't know until Mary Beth Shaw introduced me to them.  I can't believe I have lived this long without them....   The amount of the pigment in Golden combined with being Open acrylics means they stay wet longer and allow me to get [...]

  Welcome to April's Colorful Gelli Print Party! The packing tape video by Gelli Arts (here) inspired my play today.  But, alas,  I am patience impaired and did not want to wait for the layers to dry so I played with the tape on the Gelli Plate in a different way.   What did I [...]
