Gel Printing Techniques and Tutorials

Why do I love gel printing? Because it’s fun!  Why is it so much fun?  There is a touch of mystery to the play.  You never know for sure what the print will be until the paper is lifted plus it is monoprinting and no two prints are ever identical.  Kind of like snowflakes!

Getting Started

Which plates do I use? I use the Gel Press plates because they have the best squish. Squish is a very technical term, but that is the secret to the best gel plates. Wondering what size to get or what paints to use? Check out the getting started video.

What if you’re brand new or still getting familiar with your gel plate and printing?  Check out these 3 videos!

Technique tutorials

I’ve been playing with a gel plate for years now and there seems to be unlimited ways to use it.  Here are a few of my favorite technique tutorials.  

Art Journaling

Sometimes the gel print is the first layer when art journaling, sometimes the last, or somewhere in the between!

Using Your Prints

How can you use your prints?  Any way you would use paper, you can use a gel print!  Here are a few videos of ways I have used mine. I have such fun making them, it doesn’t matter to me if I use them or not, it is just fun to look through the stacks and run my hands over the colors!

On-Line Workshops

My online workshops are downloadable and have lifetime access so you can watch whenever it fits your schedule.

Workshops are more in depth than blog posts or YouTube videos where I’m breaking down the techniques for you step-by-step.

Most importantly, you’re protected by my 30 day money back guarantee so you can check out any workshop risk free. Kick the tires, look at all the information and if what you’ve learned hasn’t helped you simply send me a one line email saying the course isn’t right for you for any reason or no reason at all.  It’s really that simple.
