Art Rocks!!

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!

Art Rocks!! 

Cheers! 🙂

Explosion Of Color – Part 1

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!!!  🙂
