One of the ways I create unique prints is by using several colors at once on the Gelli Plate® without making mud.  It’s something that is easier to show than to explain so I created a video to get you started mixing colors on the Gelli Plate®.

To make it easier for you (and so you can focus on the fun and the play) I created a PDF cheat sheet for you to download and print out.  That way, you’ve got the information right next to you when you’re printing.

How can you get the video?  It is one of the treats I have for my newsletter friends.  Just click on the photo, share your email and let me pop into your inbox twice a month or so and you’ll be on your way! gelli-printing-with-multiple-colors-carolyn-dube-500-fixed

Gelli Play One Pull Wonders Workshop with Carolyn DubeReady to play with the entire rainbow all at once?  Take advantage  of the hours and hours I’ve spent discovering what you can do with a Gelli PlateR. I’ve done all that experimentation so you can dive right in and make complex prints yourself with One Pull Wonders.

Once you know how it’s done, it is very easy to create layers of vibrant colors in just one easy pull.  Even if you’ve never Gelli® printed before!  And these are all techniques that I haven’t shared before!
