Gelli Plates is what you Need from Gelli Arts for your Prints

Probably you have no idea how much more Mixed Media Art has to offer and the level of customization you can get to. The imagination that you want to use gelatine to make your own printing plate could make you sick because of the messy situation associated with gelatine plus the fact that you will spend so much time.

However GelliArts have created the Gelli Plate which is an alternative for you and much better because it is non - perishable. It will give you the same results as having used gelatine but it is non – toxic and you will be able to make many more prints. You will get the Gelli Plate in three different sizes 6″x6″, 8″x10″ and 12″ x 14″. It is said that the 8″x10″ is the best for A4 sheets of paper.

While it is advisable that you gather together all the materials you need as well as ensuring you have enough space, see below some of these materials that you will need:
  • Acrylic paints
  • The Gelli Plate
  • A brayer and mark making tools
  • Stencils
  • Netting or lace
  • Sequence wrap
Even as you make your prints you ought o exercise some creativity.
