Adventures in Gelli Printing
After reading about monoprinting in one of my classes, I decided that I wanted to give it a try. Because really, just reading about an art technique is only so much fun, right? So after a bit of research, I decided to pick up a Gelli Arts Printing Plate. It seemed like a fun way to jump into printing, and I love that I don't need a press! We bought the 6 X 6 plate, I figured it would be a good place to start and I can always buy another one later. It's been a ton of fun playing around with this thing so far. Here are some of my favorite prints I've pulled:
Some of the prints I've done are actual monoprints, but it's also fun to layer things, re-press, and see what happens.
In other printing news, I signed up for a screenprinting workshop taking place in a couple of months; I'm super excited!
Have you guys played with any kind of printing? I'd love to hear about it!
