Gel Printing FUNdamentals

Gel Printing FUNdamentals workshop with Carolyn Dube

It’s no secret how much I love gel printing.  Making mountains of prints over the years has brought me immeasurable joy plus it has allowed me to discover the FUNdamentals of monoprinting.  Are amazing prints random guess work? Nope. But it can feel that way if you don’t know the FUNdamental principles.

Watch Gel Printing FUNdamentals Workshop on YouTube.

Registration is now closed, but if you’d like to be the first to know when it opens, get signed up for the waitlist.

Color is a huge part of making prints, especially avoiding mud.  But there are ways to use the entire rainbow, all at once, and not make mud.  You bet that is covered in the workshop!

Gel Printing FUNdamentals Workshop with Carolyn Dube

Throughout our 15 lessons together, you’ll see step-by-step how I use the FUNdamentals while printing with trash, a common kitchen supply, fibers, pencils, cosmetic sponges, stencils, rubber stamps and more!

But what about all the prints that aren’t home run amazing prints?  You bet I make blah prints all the time.  You’ll get to see how I build up layers on those prints  and most importantly, why I make the choices that I do so you can apply it to your printmaking!

Words are one of my favorite elements to use in my art…but I don’t like my handwriting.  Creating words on a gel plate lets me go right around this!

Life’s busy. With a limited amount of time to be creative, if you want to skip the trial and error and get right to the fun of printing, then get ready to play!  Each video lesson is 10-20 minutes long so you can watch and get to the play.

What are the basic supplies that you need?  In the getting started videos in the classroom, I go in detail about the sizes and types of products to guide you to finding the supplies that give you the looks you want in your prints.

  • Gel plates, I use the Gel Press Plates because they have the best squish and have held up very well to all my play over the years.  I like to use 2 side by side for several techniques.  This allows me to use paint in different ways and not waste a thing. The plates can be the same size or different sizes.  You don’t have to have 2, instead you can simply use half of 1 plate for the first part and the other half for the second part of the technique.
  • A soft rubber brayer
  • Paint– any acrylic paint works.  In the getting started videos, I go into detail about the different kinds of paints for printing
  • Paper

What else will I be using?  I am a big believer in use what you have and substituting with what you like.  In the classroom is a detailed list of every little thing I am using, but you don’t have to have all of that.

We’ll be using things from the kitchen, from the trash, rubber stamps, StencilGirl stencils, and more.  StencilGirl has generously offered a 10% coupon to everyone in the workshop.

    I absolutely loved the video of your husband making his first gel print!! (In that place often myself and so I totally get his indecisiveness!) It was hysterical and totally sweet at the same time. You can see at the beginning and end how much the man adores you and also how curious and enammored you are with him attempting to meet you in your normally separate world. I’m so excited for him to see the rest of the class videos! LOL His excitement makes me want to see them, too. I think I probably will as I need the same help he does!! Thank you for sharing this. It made my day. ?

    I really want to take this course; however, I don’t get paid until 9/3. Is there any way you could keep it open until after Labor Day?

  • Rachel August 26, 2017, 9:18 am

    Hello, I’m from UK, just want to check that’s not a problem?

    Many thanks – Rachel x

      I love that the world is a very small place thanks to technology. If you can get the internet and play videos then you’re all good for the workshop Rachel!

    I tried to signup and didn’t realize that it didn’t go through. Now when I try to sign up, it says that the cost is $50,000.00

    Is there any way to still sign up at the $99.00?

  • Lauren Lipko August 31, 2017, 9:59 pm

    I “Thought” I signed up, but just now realize that it didn’t go through.
    I tried to sign up again and the price now says $50,000.00
    Is there a way to still sign up for the $99.00?

    • Lauren Lipko August 31, 2017, 10:00 pm

      Sorry for the double posting…again, it didn’t appear to go through. @#$*@)(#*& internet! (Yes, I live in a poorly served internet area.)
