The monotype printing process is something that got me really excited about art over 20 years ago. You never know what you’re going to get, and I love the myriad of textures and patterns!
The new, inexpensive product called Gelli® Plate allows you to create beautiful monotypes without a press, using materials anyone has in their studio.
When I posted these online recently, artist Christine Phelps asked: “These really take the Gelli® Plate from a crafting to fine art level! Do you have a class brewing?”
Yes! “Gelli® Plate Printmaking” is a quick, technique-based, $25 class and includes three professionally produced videos demonstrating how to achieve beautiful results with minimal supplies.
Lesson 1: Bands of Color and Texture
