Gelli Prints made with Splash Ink

Did you know that Splash Inks are compatible with the Gelli Printing Plate?  Splash Ink is acrylic based and does not harm the Gelli Plate printing surface.
With Splash Ink, you can create any color directly onto the Gelli printing surface or it can be mixed with any brand heavy bodied acrylic paint or medium to create colors and tints without losing color saturation or brilliance. Splash Ink is perfect for creating unique printing effects which call for different paint thicknesses.

Gelli Printing with Splash Ink

Supplies:
Gelli Arts Printing plate in any size
Splash Ink Acrylic Mixing Colors
Cheap acrylic paints
Acrylic Retarding Medium
Small rubber brayer
Rubber Combs, stencils and plastic bubble wrap
Non stick craft sheet
Paper or card stock

Instructions:

Read the instructions on your Gelli Arts Printing plate and lay the printing plate on a non-stick craft sheet.

Squeeze some Splash Ink and a little retarding medium directly onto the plate and roll the colors out with a rubber brayer. The colors will be transparent so you can mix directly on the plate. Add opaque or metallic acrylic paints if desired.

Make impressions with a stencil, bubble wrap or rubber combs. Draw on the wet surface of the plate. Be playful!

Lay the right side of the paper down on the plate and gently rub the back of the paper.

Carefully lift the paper and pull your print!

It’s easy and fun and each print will be unique.

Your prints can be used to create beautiful backgrounds and collage elements.
