Gelli printing

I   Yesterday I started a short online course: Gelli Printing Plus with Carla Sonheim. These are a few of my early results. I’m enjoying painting on the Gelli plate. The last pic was just using up some left over paint but it will make a nice background or collage paper.

Gelli prints & a new stencil

A couple of new Gelli prints in my sketchbook. The 1st has some collage added. The 2nd is overlapped prints using stencils. Then I decided to cut a new stencil from drafting film. I’ll be using it with my Gelli plate, so I cut away 1 side – it can be used as a stencil […]

Printed tags

A couple of pages in my visual diary – I’ve used my Gelli plate as a stamp and rolled excess paint onto the page.

Gelli printing again

Interfacing is harder to print on than paper or smooth fabric – I found a few layers of printing worked […]

Free form quilts in progress

This is from yesterday when I was diverted from doing exhibition work or a bird for our display at the craft fair next weekend – I like the colours but have put it away for now. Above: a previous 1 I’ve been working on – all my hand dyed & some hand printed fabrics. Have […]

screen printing deconstructed

Organza is difficult to photograph but here are a couple of pics. I have 3 different weights in handwoven Cambodian silk as well as some other silk organza. The Cambodian silk is lovely – a more open weave, which will give a nice variety when it’s all pieced together. Below: on the print table before […]
