A quick video today with a quick look at some quick Gelli Plate printed papers! I have some mixed media projects planned and they need some colourful papers, so what better way to make them than to get my Gelli plate out and do some monoprinting?! So that is what I did and I filmed some tips on using Gelli plates with heavy body acrylic paints because that is what I am using today!
If you haven’t got a Gelli plate, or one of the other synthetic gel-based monoprinting plates on the market, then don’t forget that I do have a blog post all about how to make a gelatin plate. Some of the techniques I share in today’s video are specific for the synthetic plates but you will still pick up some great techniques for using on your DIY plate too!
As always the supplies are all listed below the video and you can find a close up of some of the papers too! Let me know if you have any questions.

Fabriano Accademia Paper is great for this 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.

Try out Project #1 with a technique for turning your drawings into mixed media collage.
Project #2 was all about using gelli prints to make botanical art.
Project #3 use your gelli prints to make cute envelopes with colour on the inside and outside. PLUS there is a free template too!
Project #4 scan your gelli prints and use them to add printed elements in a hybrid art journal page.
Project #5 use your gelli prints to make a cute coordinated present wrap gift set (perfect for Christmas btw!).
Haven’t got a gelli plate? Don’t worry, make your own with this handy blog post on Gelatin plates.
So I’m super excited to show you what I used these papers for but you will need to wait until Sunday to see that, mainly because I haven’t edited the video yet!
Have fun with your printing!
