The Gelli Plate is a tool that encourages play. No pressure, just play. That is why I love it so much! I’ll be guiding you step-by-step as you create amazing papers loaded with layers of color and design. People who don’t know about the Gelli Plate can’t imagine how the layers were made. But you will learn exactly how it is done! This workshop is loaded with techniques for both newbies and veterans of the Gelli Plate.
Prints can be just one layer or have layer after layer building up the pattern and color to create 1-of-a-kind papers! I will share the why’s and how’s as I print my papers so you can make your prints with confidence!
You’re looking right over my shoulder as I make my Gelli prints. You’ll see it all- including my oops and how I handle them. I’m also here to answer any questions you might have along the way.
Just some of what you will learn in this workshop:
- how to get layers of color in just one single pull from the Gelli Plate
- how to use homemade and purchased stencils
- how to get texture on the Gelli Plate with found objects
- how color theory applies to the Gelli printing (the polite way of saying how to avoid mud)
- how to get subtle or bold effects when you want where you want
- how to use more than just paint on the Gelli Plate
- how to use rubber stamps on the Gelli Plate
- building a composition using layers on the Gelli Plate
- painting on the Gelli Plate
- how to deal with the ugly prints
- how to use the prints in a variety of mixed media projects
- how to combine multiple techniques in one print
- how to be free and experience all the joy in playing with the Gelli Plate!
Just added- bonus lesson on turning Gelli prints into any size gift wrap!
I’ll also share mixed media projects you can do with your Gelli prints. There is no limit to how you can use these papers! Not only will you be getting technique videos you will also see how I use these papers in my artwork.
Once you are in the class you will have access to the entire class so you can work at your own pace! 7 hours of video!
All videos are downloadable!
The class is hosted over at CarolynDubeArtWorkshops.com on a private blog that you will have access to forever!
There is a secret Facebook to share with and get to know fellow Gelli printing classmates too!
This is a video based class so you will need a computer and basic computer skills. High speed internet access is highly recommended. Videos are hosted at Vimeo.
I live in Mexico…those spray inks you mentioned are not available…no spray inks are. Can I make something similar.
I would think you can! I have mixed up spray inks using liquid watercolors with some water and also used reinker drops mixed with water to make spray inks. And I played with really watered down acrylic paint in a sprayer (this one tends to clog the spray bottle over time- but that was because I probably didn’t water it down enough). Would any of these work for you?
Carolyn, I signed up for the Gelli workshop, but since I was out of town on the first, I am now clueless and don’t know where to go to see the video, or where to go to see the online class. Help! Thanks
I totally understand! Just sent you an email with all the information!
I’m trying to figure out how to sign up for your One Print Wonder class and can’t seem to find the info.
I’ve been so busy, I haven’t had time to put it up on that website yet…sorry! You can find all the details at http://acolorfuljourney.com/?p=11063
I purchased your Gelli Printing Classes a number of years ago when they first came out and have been trying to re-watch them but have been unable to watch anything except the first week and a later lesson. Can you help me as I would love to be able to watch them again.
