A few weeks ago I received an e-mail asking if I'd be interested in reviewing Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plates. I love trying new products(or new to me products)...so I told them to send them my way! Today I felt like a kid at Christmas when I found the package in my mail box at school. I pulled out the product & read through the directions (always important). Seemed easy enough to use. I'll provide links so you can view some demo's & obtain further information on the product. I first tested tempera paint. It did want to pull/ball up because of the gel plate, but I still feel I obtained a nice monoprint off of it(the basket weave on the left). This was the 8x10 size gel plate. I then tried acrylic paint. The picture I took is not the best, but I thought the results were very cool. I have been wanting to try a monoprint landscape like this for some time with my students. This was the smaller 6x6 size. Clean up was a snap! I really do like this product, and will keep my eyes open for it in our district approved suppliers!!! I know BLICK carries it presently!
THANKS GELLI ARTS FOR LETTING ME TRY YOUR WONDERFUL PRODUCT!!
