Gel Press 101 Back to Basics
With all the kiddos heading back to school, Gel Press® thought we should take you back to the basics! Please visit each blog for an idea or technique that you may or may not have seen before! Happy Hopping!
I love this technique.....letting the paint on the plate dry completely before adding another layer. You can add as many layers as you want before making a print on paper.
5" X 7" Mixed Media Paper
The Crafters Workshop #355 Stencil
Acrylic Paint - Titan Buff, Teal, Green Gold, Black, Copper
Black Charcoal Pencil
White Sakura Gellyroll Pen
Step One - Place stencil on plate and sponge on some Titan Buff
Step Two - After the paint dries, sponge on some Teal
Step Three - After paint dries, sponge on Green Gold
Step Four - After paint dries, brayer on black through the "Gears" stencil. Remove stencil.
Step Five - After paint dries, brayer Bronze over entire plate.
Step Six - While the bronze paint is still wet, place paper over plate and rub for approximately and minute or two, then slowly pull print. Check while you're pulling to make sure that all of the paint layers are lifting....if not, replace paper and rub some more....then pull.
I added a little shading with a black charcoal pencil and little white dots with a Gellyroll pen.
