Using Liquitex Paint Markers on a Gelli Plate

Video using Liquitex Paint Markers for Gelli Printing Join me for a Colorful Gelli Print Party!

It’s experimentation time!  For this month’s Colorful Gelli Print Party, I am playing with Liquitex Paint Markers on the Gelli Plate.  The paint pens are water based acrylic paint (at least I think they are) so I wondered if they would work for Gelli printing.  And they did!

They ended up creating a wood cut feeling, but in lots of colors.


This was a completely different feeling for me than using paint on the Gelli Plate.  There is so much more precision that can be easily obtained by using a marker instead of a paint brush…at least the way I use a paint brush!

    Very cool! The colors are lovely. I like the Liquitex acrylic paints and I had no idea they had markers, too. I’ll surely check these out now. 🙂
