Gelli™ Printing: Dark Over Light

Apply layers of light paint with a DIY sponge dauber, let it dry—then brayer dark paint over it and pull your print. Watch this Gelli video to see it demonstrated step-by-step!




There are many possible variations using this technique. This time, we'll apply the paint from light to dark to produce interesting print effects.



To start, let's make a sponge dauber using a round cosmetic sponge and masking tape. To do this, simply gather the edges of the sponge together, forming a ball of sorts. Wrap the gathered edges in masking tape, which forms the dauber and serves as a convenient handle.



The paints used in this video are DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic paints, and DecoArt Dazzling Metallics. They're wonderful for this technique!



The key is to allow the painted image to dry on the plate. This technique is perfect for using thin applications of fast-drying acrylics! If you like to take time to develop an image on your plate and have been frustrated with fast drying paint... give this technique a try!


Here's how:
  1. Apply light colors to your Gelli plate with a sponge dauber.
    • Leave areas of the gel plate unpainted.
    • Add focal points and patterns by dabbing paint through stencils
  2. Allow paint to dry thoroughly.
  3. Load your brayer with a dark color and roll it over the dry paint on your Gelli plate.
  4. Quickly cover with your printing paper, rub to transfer the paint — and slowly pull your print. This should pull up just about all of the paint on the plate.



This is a simple technique, but here are a few things to keep in mind:
  • Use fast-drying acrylic paints.
  • Avoid any blobs or thick applications of paint since they take a while to dry.
  • Allow the painted image to dry completely. (Do NOT use heat to hurry the drying!)
  • Roll a thin layer of paint over the dry paint — then quickly cover with paper.
  • Give a little extra time when rubbing to transfer the paint to the paper.
  • Pull the print slowly. The paper can tend to stick to the plate a bit as you pull the print.

Here are a few variations to try:
  • Use metallic and/or interference paints. They'll pop against the final dark layer.
  • For a painterly print, apply the paint with a soft brush instead of a sponge dauber.
  • Press texture tools into the paint while it's wet.
  • Experiment with different color combinations for very different results. Be sure to create enough contrast.


The dry layers of sponged paint created some unexpected interesting paint textures! 




These prints can be great beginnings, too! Add doodling on them with paint pens, colored pencils and your favorite drawing media.


As you can see, there's great potential for creative explorations in printing with dark over 
light colors. Have fun!

    How about adding a couple of chopsticks taped together to the inside of the Dauber then use the masking tape around the sponge & chopsticks. ( Popsicle Stick or Tongue Depressor ) I have arthritis. Thought I'd give some suggestions for those in the same boat. JAR

  148. OK, here's another thing to try, fill up a small balloon with water, (not too full, only until you get a nice round bottom. Dip it into paint and print onto gelli plate, try dipping several colors too from your pallette fun, should work exactly like this, after drying paint and lift off, or use the transfer tape method I mentioned in above video.

    ReplyDelete
