One of our members, Carol Edwards, gave a fantastic demonstration on the Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate. We learned a lot about different paints, stencils, masks, mark making tools and papers. This was my initial experience with the printing plate - and I love the process. You can see my first prints in the photo above. To add more dimension, I probably will add more paint layers to these sheets.
Carol suggested that we use Kabnet Dry Wax Paper (Deli Wrap) as our substrate. This paper can be purchased via Amazon or at Sam's Club. I really do like the translucent nature of the paper. It enhances the final print.
There are about 500 sheets in each box of deli wrap. But I'm sure that we can all think of other mixed-media art projects where the deli paper would come in handy.
