I spent the last several days in bed with the stomach flu so I was excited when I felt better yesterday to do a little Gelli-plate printing! Yahoo!! 🙂
I was experimenting printing on transparentcy film which I learned from Carla Sonheim in her online class: 2019 Year of the Collage. I used Golden High Flow Acrylics for this technique.
I wanted to show you one that reminded me of rocks in a stream:
I did the second print or what is called a “ghost” print on deli paper:
And here is a photo of sheet music behind the printed transparentcy:
So many possibilities! I can’t wait to get back to my art table!

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!!! 🙂
