Let’s gel plate print! I have a gel plate printing technique in my video to share with you today that will not only show you how to make a layered gel print but also how to make it any shape you want no matter what shape your gel is. I’m revisiting leaf printing for today’s video as it is a great way to get some really interesting and unusual textures. But you can try making layers and shapes using these techniques with all sorts of different printing textures so have fun with it!
The paint I am using for my print is iridescent and looks different depending on the angle you view it at so look at the photo above and then scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the colors you get when you see it from the side!

Fabriano Accademia Paper is great for printing as it is cheaper but if you can’t find it then try other student art or drawing paper. You can also use the Strathmore Printmaking paper but it is more expensive.
