I usually use Golden “Fluid” Acrylics on my Gelli plate but the other day, I decided to try Golden’s “High Flow” Acrylics. They are more liquid in consistency much like acrylic inks.
I discovered this video on YouTube that describes them. I found it helpful and thought you might too:
Everything was going fine…until the lid got clogged and I kept trying to squeeze out the paint. And then it EXPLODED! Teal paint EVERYWHERE!!!
This is probably why I normally paint outside but on this day, I was in my kitchen. It looked like a crime scene with blue paint! Ugh! Definitely HIGH FLOW!
It went all over me but then I looked behind me… I got the kitchen cabinets, the floor, the sink, the dishwasher! Oh me, my! It wasn’t pretty. 😦
I figured I had to clean it quickly before it all dried. Thank goodness it dries a little slower…
I thought I would forever be seeing teal spots… I just had to laugh! It was either that or cry! 😉
So I stayed CALM and PRINTED ON! I will show you my gelli prints tomorrow.
I learned a valuable lesson that I wanted to pass on to you – if the lid is clogged, don’t continue to SQUEEZEEEEE!!!
Happy PAINTING!!! 🙂
