MONO PRINTING WITH A FLEXIBLE TWIST
Gelli printing is a relatively new form of mono printing that uses flexible printing plates to create textures and layers of colour.
BRAYER ROLLER & GELLI PLATE
Using a brayer roller coat the Gelli plate with a very fine layer of water based ink or paint. You can create textures and patterns using stencils and natural elements such as leaves.
This form of printing does not require a press, simply place a piece of paper over the prepared Gelli plate and using your hands smooth over the back of the paper making sure to make contact between the plate and the paper. Carefully lift the paper to reveal your print.
There is also a lithograph-type print you can create with Gelli plates for a demonstration of this and other Gelli prints please go to printmaking tutorials or book onto a Gelli Prints and Monotype class.
