Gel Printing with Packing Material

Packing materials make wonderful tools for gel printing! You might be wondering what came with this? Me too! I can’t remember what on earth it was but I couldn’t part with the stuff that was meant to be recycled or trashed. That happens often, since just about anything can become a pattern making tool for the Gel Press plate!

If you’d like to know more about gel printing, I’ve got a page of resources for you from getting started, to storing your plate, to techniques to make prints, to what to do with your prints!

    per usual carolyn a totally enjoyable vid with found materials. thicker paint better stamping, I probably do this without thinking and wonder why this technique doesn’t always work. now I’m conscious of it. thanks

    you never cease to make me smile & brighten up the day, And I like what you create: your casual approach is a reminder that this should be fun & Not a very
    serious test: this is a choice to have fun While creating.

    Thanks so,
