Gelli™ Printing on Textured Paper

Smooth surfaces are wonderful for making highly detailed monoprints. But what if... you print on a textured substrate? Take a look at this video and see how fabulous the results can be!


This isn't about printing on commercial textured paper, like a cold-press or rough watercolor surface. What we're doing here is preparing an intentionally textured substrate designed to be an integral part of the print.


Because the Gelli plate has 'give', you can press a lumpy-bumpy textured paper into the plate and still get good paint coverage on your print. 

The ‘halo’ surrounding the raised areas on the paper enhances the dimensional look of the print. But if you prefer a more solid print, simply use more paint on the Gelli plate! Or keep adding more layers.




There are countless ways to create an interesting texture on a sheet of paper. But here we're focusing on building texture on your paper with dimensional paint and puff paint — thick acrylic paints that come in squeeze bottles with a small nozzle — (available at art and craft stores, with fabric paints). They’re so much fun to draw and scribble with! Experiment and play!

FYI: Puff paints require heat to achieve their full dimensional effect. A steam iron is often 
recommended for ‘puffing’ the paint. Follow directions for the specific brand you use.



The paper used in the examples is Staples® Card Stock, 8 1/2" x 11", White, 110 lb. The prints in this video are created on the 12"x14" Gel Printing Plate — a wonderful size plate 
for creating bleed prints on these custom-textured card stock papers!

Preparing textured papers with dimensional and puff paints requires significant drying time. It's best to prepare your sheets of textured paper at least several hours ahead. Overnight is optimal if you want to plan ahead. Make sure not to stack papers with wet or tacky paint or they'll stick together.




The printing process on textured paper is the same as pulling any Gelli print. You can use your favorite masks, stencils, and texture tools, as usual. What makes this technique different is the textured paper!



Use dimensional paint to create 3-D, raised lines by squeezing the paint onto your paper. 
Simply squeeze lines, dots, squiggles, etc. on your paper. You can apply it randomly, or with a design in mind. Then, let it dry completely.



This is a layered print created over a design made with dimensional paint.

Here’s a detail from the print above showing the paint’s dimensional quality.
Also in the dimensional paint category, you'll find puff paints. Squeeze them onto your paper, same as the regular dimensional paints. Allow to dry, then follow the instructions for heating the brand you're using, and watch your design expand and puff up! This has a higher relief than regular dimensional paint, and puffs into a unique spongy texture.
This is dry puff paint — ready to be heated to expand.
Puff paint — heated and expanded. It turns lighter in color and a bit spongy.


This print has several layers of paint printed over a puffed paint design. The areas next to the dimensional lines didn’t make contact with the painted plate, creating an interesting ‘halo’ effect. Have fun drawing, painting and doodling into these white areas! The printed dimensional and puff paints also take paint and markers nicely, so you can embellish those too!


Here’s what the print looks like after going back into it with paint markers and pens.
And a detail picture for a closer look.

As you print the same piece over and over and layer paints, the prints created with textured papers continue to get more interesting as the colors build up.
This detail picture shows how puff paint accepts layers of paint.
Printing on textured paper is similar to using any texture plate on the Gelli plate. That means the textured paper leaves an image in the paint left on the Gelli plate — and can produce exciting ghost prints! 

Use dimensional and puff paints as a springboard for ideas on how to make your own textured papers for Gelli printing! Make a bunch at a time and let them dry overnight! As you experiment and come up with your own cool papers and prints, please share them with us on Facebook!

  168. My 10 year old granddaughter is an art-oholic and has a great art teacher at her school! It would be wonderful to be able to gift them with this!! I love Gelli printing on my small plate and this summer we will be doing some printing together for sure! A bigger plate would be a blessing!

  173. Oh wow! Another great technique to try! It would be really great to be able to get a Gelli Plate for my grandson's art teacher. I recently attended their Science and Arts Night, and judging from the student exhibits, the art teacher does an outstanding job and would be one who would make lots of use of a Gelli Plate.

  174. I'd love to win one of the Gelli Plate for myself and my school. I've been reading this blog for awhile and have been anxious to try one. I'm an art teacher myself and think the students would love to be able to use one of these at a center in the classroom! Thanks for all the great ideas!

  179. The more I see the more I want! Fabulous papers that you have created and thank you so much for sharing how plus all the other little tips you give us. Thank you very much for the chance to win a Gelli and those lovely accessories.
    I make a lot of my own background papers with inks and paints now but I think a Gelli plate would take me to another level, have a lovely weekend Karen x
