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!
Watch Trying Liquitex Paint Markers on a Gelli Plate on YouTube.
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!

Oh thanks for doing this, I had wondered if pens would work and now I know.
Love that itty bitty gelli plate…and, of course I need one and some markers…I’m just sayin’!
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. 🙂
