A Fancy Gel Printing Tool from the Trash

These prints were made with a fancy pattern making tool. Where did I get that tool? Where all the best pattern makers seem to come from – the trash! All around you are amazing pattern making goodies!

When I’m playing with found patterns there are three big factors that I pay attention to because those factors are what guides the decision making process. It isn’t guessing or just luck, it’s about understanding why the gel plate does what it does.

I’ve gone deep on those three factors in my newest online workshop, Playing with Found Patterns. This workshop has 2 parts to provide you with a solid understanding so you can easily apply it when you’re playing.

The first part is all about getting comfortable and fully grasp the main factors that you can control when making a pattern on the gel plate.

The second part is about applying the information in a variety of ways so you never ever have to be stuck in a creative rut. You’ll know how to create different types of prints, using what you have around you right now.

    Carolyn, I’m loving your new class! Even though I’m a fairly experienced gel printer, I’m learning new things (where was this class when I was a beginner?!) and it’s a terrific value. Your teaching background is a real asset. Thanks for taking me to the next level!

      So happy to hear how much fun you’re having in the workshop Kathy! That’s one of the things I adore about gel printing, there’s always more- it’s a tool that seems to have no limits on ideas and ways to use them!
