Gelli Printing — Techniques on Fabric!!!

In this video you'll see the 12" x 14" Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate in action! Printing on fabric with acrylic and metallic fabric paints, using MagicStamps™ — with plenty of tips and techniques!

Many monoprinting techniques work just as well on fabric as they do on paper. Watch this video and see how fun and easy it is to make your own printed fabric!



Love using fabric in your art? Try printing your own unique designs!

Gelli printing on various types of fabric
Fabrics with a tight weave, like muslin and PFD cottons, are excellent choices.

Sheer fabrics, like organza and silk Habotai can be monoprinted and used in layered works to great effect!




NOTE: PFD fabrics means "Prepared for Dyeing"


Dharma Trading Co. is an excellent source for various PFD fabrics — as well as printable scarves and garments.




The process and techniques for monoprinting on fabric are the same as printing on paper. 

Instead of pulling a print on paper ... place your fabric on a painted Gelli plate, rub to transfer the paint — and pull your print. It's as simple as that!

Monoprinted fabric
It can be helpful to iron your fabric first to remove any wrinkles, but not necessary. 

You also might want to stabilize your fabric before printing on it.


To do this, simply iron the WRONG side of the fabric to the SHINY (plastic) side of a piece of freezer paper. 

The fabric will temporarily bond to the freezer paper.

To release, just pull the fabric off the backing — so
easy!


NOTE:  If the fabric surface has bubbles when ironed onto freezer paper, iron on the fabric side and smooth them out. 

Monoprinting on stabilized fabric feels a lot like printing on paper.  




You may find it easier to stamp, draw or paint directly on your fabric when it's backed with freezer paper.


Stabilizing fabric is completely optional — a personal preference!




You may not feel the need to take the extra step to stabilize muslin or sturdier fabrics, but I do recommend stabilizing sheer fabrics.  

Stabilizing makes sheers much easier to handle in the printing process. Also, it keeps the paint that bleeds through the sheer fabric off your hands :) 


Silk Habotai 5mm — so sheer and lightweight — with a lustrous finish


Sheer fabrics, like silk Habotai, are wonderful for layering and collage. 

This is a monoprinted piece of silk Habotai 5mm. 


It's draped over a sheet of printed paper to show how translucent and lightweight it is!







Try fusing your printed sheer fabric over text for a muted, layered effect! Lovely and ethereal.


Mistyfuse is ideal for fusing sheer fabrics!






When printing on fabric, you have many choices for paint. Acrylic paints, fabric paints and water-based screen-printing inks are all good. 

Assorted fabric paints

Various brands of fabric medium are available — and can turn any acrylic paint into fabric paint!


Golden's GAC 900 is an excellent fabric medium.


Add GAC 900 to any acrylic paint. The paint will print with a softer hand — and once heat-set, the printed fabric will have improved launderability.


IMPORTANT:  Follow the specific directions for the brand of fabric medium you use.


If you don't intend to wash the fabric after it's printed — there's no need to add fabric medium to your paint.




You may need to use a bit more paint when printing on fabric than when printing on paper. But be careful not to use too much ... it can absorb right through to the back — or create blobs when you print it!

Try using less paint when printing on sheer fabrics. 

NOTE:  It can take some experimenting to discover how different paints act on different fabrics. Same applies to learning how much paint to use!


Jacquard's Lumiere fabric paints offer a great selection of rich metallic colors.

Lumiere is positively dazzling when printed on black fabric! I find it works best with a fairly heavy layer of paint on the Gelli plate. 

These printed fabrics are way more metallic and luminous in person than these photos depict.






When printing on fabric, use combs, stencils, masks, rubbing plates ... and your favorite texture tools for making marks!



MagicStamps™ are among my favorite fabric design tools. 



For complete step-by-step information on using these heat-moldable foam blocks, please take a look at the blog post, "When Gelli Meets MagicStamps™" (Jan. 16, 2012) 


Gelli printed fabric created with MagicStamps

NOTE:  There's also a video slideshow at the end of that post showing samples of Gelli printed fabric — created with MagicStamps. It's not a tutorial ... just printed examples :)

After you've printed your fabric ...





Have fun adding writing — or your personal marks — to your monoprinted fabric!


Stained by Sharpie — Brush Tip Fabric Markers — are so perfect for this!









The brush tips allow for a range of marks — and these fabric markers won't bleed on fabric the way regular Sharpies can.




Another fabulous pen is Pentel's Gel Roller for Fabric.


This 1.0mm pigment ink pen goes on so smooth! And it's permanent.


Wonderful for fine lines and handwriting!




Handprinted fabric can add an exciting and personal touch to quilts, sewing projects, art dolls, mixed media pieces, collage, art journals, handmade books, cards, scrapbooks, and jewelry. If you haven't monoprinted on fabric ... go for it! ... and add an element of unique textiles to your artwork!

  91. My friend and I want to do a large, fabric based installation, so this might be just the ticket.

    Heck, even if I don't get the prize thing, the freezer paper backing is an awesome tip. Every time I go to screenprint on fabric I end up using easy tack on the table, and that just makes the fabric really sticky and pick up debris and dirt.

    ReplyDelete

  157. Coincidence? Maybe not. I just received my 8x10 Gelli Plate today and then I received this post by email! Spooky, right on. I am dying to print up some fabric using my new Gelli Plate, so your post is just what I needed to get started. I have never used a Gelli Plate before and I'm excited! I would love to win your giveaway!
