Gelli Print papers


This is totally collage. I made the collage papers using a Gelli printing plate. It is such fun, but fair warning, it’s very addictive!  Before you know it, a whole day is gone and your studio floor will be filled with papers in process. I usually try to make analogous colored papers with a few complementary colored ones. Then I start by collaging with the mid tones and big shape onto a Strathmore watercolor paper, using acrylic matte medium. The last thing to collage is the whites and black shapes.  Lastly, I use both black and white permanent markers fir adding detail.  There are many tutorage videos on YouTube about Gelli printing. Below are the handmade papers I used in this painting.
