Gelli Printing with DIY Combs

Combs make such interesting patterns in Gelli prints! Watch this video to see how easy it is to make your own combs from everyday materials!



Using combs ranks among my favorite methods for creating patterns and mark-making in 
monoprinting. In fact, I've included several examples in my new book, Gelli Plate Printing, 
demonstrating how to make your own combs.



The comb is an effective tool for creating dynamic lined patterns. There are many durable 
materials that you can easily cut teeth into to create a comb tool. The fun is in making a bunch of custom combs that can produce an assortment of different lines and widths.



Among my favorite combs are those made from eraser caps! Placing the eraser cap on a 
pencil first makes it easier to handle while cutting. Work on a cutting surface, and use a craft knife to cut tiny V-shaped notches in the tip of the eraser. This creates a versatile mini-comb! Try using it for making cross-hatch marks... and all kinds of gestural swipes! Gotta love those tiny lines! Great for making gestural lines and marks!



TIP: It's best to avoid letting acrylic paint dry on this tool, but if it does, use your craft knife to carve out any dried paint that may become clogged between the comb's teeth.

Erasers are perfect for turning into combs! Simply cut notches out of the edge of an eraser 
with a craft knife—and you're good to go! If you carve your own stamps, you may have some left-over carving material. That's perfect for making combs too!



Old credit cards, hotel keys and other laminated plastic cards are great for making into combs and scrapers! Sharp scissors are a good choice for making your cuts. But avoid making pointy teeth, as they could scratch the surface of the Gelli plate.



Another fun method for making combs is to use decorative edge scissors on a piece of cardboard (like cereal boxes) or craft foam. Simply cut straight across with wavy or zigzag scissors for an instant comb!



There are so many materials you can use to make your own collection of combs! And they're fast and easy to make! Try a few and have fun making fabulous combed prints! To create monotypes with your DIY combs, simply swipe the combs through the wet paint on a Gelli plate, cover with paper, rub to transfer the paint and pull your print. Have fun exploring different ways to create lined patterns! (For more combing ideas, see blog: "Wipe Out Monoprinting")

  7. I am a HUGE fan of the new DecoArt Media paints, i own a few but would love to own them all plus am just getting to grips with the Gelli Plate, i purchased the very small one and am enjoying how creative you can be with it, of course it is down to the wonderful Videos you show us with tons of inspiration.

  8. Like Luluvision above, I love how you don't need to have your sound on for your videos. That makes watching them without interrupting everyone around me a lot more doable.

    I really like how you're always sharing practical tips for mark making using common household items.

    Thanks!

  11. Every time I visit your blog I learn something new and have to ask myself, "Why didn't I think of that?" It makes me SMILE every time. I would love to try out those fluid acrylics on my Gelli plate! Now, I have to wait until 5 o'clock so I can go get me some erasers to make into custom combs! This tutorial will come in handy for me to incorporate into my upcoming Gelli Plate class in December! Thanks for continuing to inspire us with a plethora of ideas and giveaways too!

  20. These tools are awesome!!! I especially love the eraser caps tip. So gonna try this! Now where to find them....

    A while back I used some decorative edge scissors on funky foam to create combs for my plate. I especially like that because with harder things (like credit cards) I'd be scared of damaging my plate.

  64. Unfortunately I can't watch the video because the Flash Player is crashing all the time, but I want to thank you for showing the combs you made in the photo's as well.
    I find the commercial combs rather expensive, but this are great ideas to make your own!
    I would have thought shop cards would be too sharp to use to make combs.

  95. Thanks for sharing creative ways to make combs for use on the gelli plate. Sometimes the obvious choices can be invisible. I've been wanting the round gelli plate since it came out and your book- thankful for a chance to win.

Thankful to learn from your blog/videos.
