Gelli Arts® + Jane Davenport Gel Printing with Liquid Inks with Marsha Valk




Hi there! It’s Marsha here. Today I have a new set of watercolour techniques to show you, using the brand new Jane Davenport seashell mini printing plate and liquid inks!

You may be thinking that like watercolour, liquid inks aren’t the most suitable medium for Gelli Arts® gel printing. The viscosity is thin, and that causes the ink to bead up on the slick surface of the gel printing plate.

However, with a little experimentation, I’ve found a couple of ways around that, and I’m excited to share them with you in this video!


In the video, I’m printing with Jane Davenport INKredible Inks. These are dye-based inks that behave like a watercolour. You can substitute them with watercolours or other liquid non-permanent or semi-permanent inks


All techniques shown in the video work with other Gelli Arts® mini printing plates too.








I can’t wait to see the liquid ink and watercolour prints you create! Please share your work with us on Instagram using #gelliarts. 

Happy liquid ink printing!
