Gel Printing with Impressables and the Rainbow

Video tutorial using Impressables Gel Press plate and Dylusions paints by Carolyn Dube

What happens when a few colors are added to an Impressable Gel Press plate? FUN! Jen Starr Studio’s design, Repeat Circles, with Dylusions paints created a stack of rainbowed circle prints! And yes, rainbow should be a verb!

Watch Making rainbow circles with the Impressable Gel Press Plate on YouTube.

The Impressables Gel Press plate has a raised pattern on it. Since it is entirely made of that magical gel it has all the properties and characteristics of a gel plate.

I used an 8×10 plate as my palette and from here applied Dylusions paints to the Impressable plate. Poor orange, it thought it was going to be used in the play but at the last minute, I decided it would be sidelined. Loved these 4 colors all by themselves. I promise I’ll make it up to you later orange!

In the video, you see how I made a careful and precise print or a color blended rainbow print. Bet you know which is my favorite kind to make!

There are other patterns of the Impressables too. Below is a video of the Rose Mandala in action.

Watch on YouTube.

    This is the first I have seen of the Impressable plates and they are definitely on my “to buy” list! Your prints are just gorgeous and easy to achieve. I love my GelPress 12×12 plate…perfect for using up all of those ugly scrapbook papers I have been hoarding šŸ˜‰

    I would think pressing on the paper would get more paint from the lower areas onto the paper. If that was your goal.
