Basics – Media That Can Be Used On The Gel Plate, pt. 3 - Wet Products – Birgit Koopsen for Gelli Arts®

Hi there and welcome to the Gelli Arts® blog!

Today I’m sharing with you another “Basics” video.

This one is all about wet products that you can use on the gel plate.

With wet products I mean products that don’t dry on the gel plate. Most of the time they will be water-reactive but there are stamping inks that don’t dry on the plate (or it takes a very long time) yet, once they dried on the paper they are permanent.

The difference with dry products is that you don’t need a second layer to pull the print,
the print will be pulled straight from the plate.
In this episode I’m focusing on (water-reactive) stamping inks, watercolours and combinations
of these two.

I’m using 200gr/90lbs copier paper for my prints but it will be fun to experiment with different
types of paper. The wet products will soak in differently in other types of paper and give
a different look.
This video is only covering a part of the wet products you can use.

Next month I will show more wet possibilities on the gel plate.

Check out the Gelli Arts® YouTube channel for more “Basics” videos.


Thank you for stopping by and happy printing!
