Gelli Plate Printing
Welcome to the unique and exciting world of Gelli Plate Printing! Gelli plates are the perfect introduction to monotype printing. Using the soft silcone surface in a variety of different ways, you can create brilliantly creative designs and textures. The possibilities are seemingly endless and the results are amazing. You don't need to be skilled at drawing or painting to create brilliant art with a Gelli Plate.
Below are some examples of the projects I've completed in the past. It's an incredibly versatile medium!

This project tied in nicely with the classes study of trees and nature. We selected certain leaves from trees around the area and created a leaf print journal.
