Good Morning everyone!
I am creating a book from Gel Pressed pages, follow along to see the progress.
This next page was fully covered with paint (Crafter's Workshop heavy body acrylic). The same Impressables plate was cleaned and applied to the wet base paper which removed some paint. so a reverse technique was incorporated.
Each page will be a different color and style. I will add pen, marker, and more to finish off the pages. The mood of the day will determine which page is used for journaling.
Here are examples using a texture tool to remove some paint before pulling a print. The left side is the first pull, right side second pull. This also included Quinacridone Ezo Gold and Interference green. The rich shimmer they make is amazing.
This page is one of my favorites due to its BOLD look.
The following page picked up old layers from previous pulls, I'm loving the textures. Marks were made with a rubber soap drainer.
Use your imagination when it comes to stencils, mark making tools and the final use of the pages. With #GelPress virtually nothing is off limits!
How about Cheesecloth for some great texture?
What images do you see in this? I see eyes and a nose with flowing hair!
P.S. This week (April 23 through 29, 2017) All GelPress orders will receive a free mark making tool! You can add paint to a printed pull or use it to remove paint from the plate before you pull, as above. (valid as long as supplies last)
See you next week, right here! Jean
