Gelli Arts have become a big part of the mixed media arts movement over the years. It's a wonderful surface to paint on and prints come out crisp and clear with no press. It works like a gelatin printing plate without the recipe and it's permanent, easy to clean and store. I've had a great relationship with Gelli Arts for some years now so it's a pleasure to announce my new affiliation.

Here are a couple of Gelli Arts videos for you. and I'm hosting a live studio class on Saturday on Gelli Plate Printing. There are a couple of spots left. (Glenside, PA, 10-3-4(ish) includes lunch. Let me know if you are interested.)
Enjoy the videos!
I like to have a big stack of paper ready to print with deli paper for clean up and printing. Tissue paper is fine to print on, especially with the pigment inks. It's great for collage. Think about what you want to do with the paper and choose accordingly. Most of all Gelli printing is fun and leads to experimentation and play.
