Gelli Printing.........Found Objects


Work in the hay fields has come to a screeching halt...

It has been raining for two days!


With extra time on my hands, I pulled out
the Gelli Arts plate:


Today I am using the Jacquard Lumiere Textile Paints...




I made a few hand made stamps from objects I find:

I found a bag full of rubber rings at the thrift store.
I glued the rings to a piece of plastic.
Made a great stamp!




The thrift store also had a pkg of chipboard letters
that I glued to a piece of plastic.




The hardware store had a huge pkg of felt circles.
I glued them to a piece of plastic I cut from the bottom of
a disposable food container.



 It didn't take long to make a dozen prints on fabric:

The Gelli Arts plate is 8 x 10 inches.
If you create your own gelatin plate, you can make it
any size you want.




I also came across this plastic garden screen.
Makes negative grid lines across the printed fabric.





This fabric was printed with the red rubber mat and
the black plastic garden screen.





These prints were created with a wire BBQ screen
and circles cut from freezer paper.





This print was made with a plastic screen from a food smoker and the chipboard letter stamp.




These prints were made with freezer paper circles
and the rubber ring stamp.

FUN printing with FOUND OBJECTS!

Hi I'm brand new to Gelli printing. I've only taken a Gelli Plate class. I don't get how you are using the raised objects to make impressions. Like the circles attached to the plastic. I hope that makes sense. I would lay down a stencil then put paper on top of it and rub. I also saw the leaf print with big plastic leaf and didn't understand how you used it. Sorry about so many questions. Any advice would help.

Hi Rainy, you are a NO REPLY blogger, so I don't have an email address to reply to you. I will answer your questions here:
When you press an object against the Gelli plate and lift it off, you have removed paint from the plate. That will print as a design. The silicone leaves act the same way. I press them on the painted gelli plate, lift them off. They have removed paint from the plate. Lay down your paper or fabric and make your print. I hope this helps.
