What is the best paint for Gellii® printing?

What is the best paint for Gelli® printing?  Any acrylic paint will work and different paints behave differently.  Spoiler alert- there isn't one paint that is best.  Why?

A friend and I video taped our art play as we traded canvases after each step – see how it all turned out!

Artistic collaboration is a fantastic way to spur growth and creative exploration.  When Kirsten Reed stopped by for a visit, we wanted to create together with a twist.  After we completed each layer, we traded canvases.  Working layer by layer, our styles collided and crashed and pushed us each out of our comfort zones in the best [...]

The secret of a mystery was revealed to me by my muse while I was art journaling.  Or perhaps she was having fun reminding of something I need to be reminded of every now and then.  Let's just say the secret isn't rocket science...  In this video, you'll see how I deal with not being able [...]

I’m using spray paints with a stencil to create patterned paper

Video playing it loose with a stencil and paint on a junk mail envelope with Carolyn Dube

I'm playing it fast and loose with a stencil and paint on a junk mail envelope. It was the end of the day and I wanted to use up my leftover paints.   When time is short, anything within reach is fair game for me...and this was what I grabbed! When I go loose...there is usually [...]

It was just a piece of book text for wiping up leftover paints.  Just a place to test out if the I had reinked the ink pad enough.  This wasn't meant to be anything.  It was junk, but then it wasn't.  I saw a conversation happening between all these people.  They had a message for me [...]
