I received, or rather bought for myself, a Gelli plate for Christmas. It’s so much fun. I loved the result with ordinary craft paints so much that I went out and bought some professional acrylic paints.  I haven’t used acrylics since high school and remember really hating them. Ever since  I have usually used watercolours or pastels.  But I love the way the acryllics mix on the Gelli plate.

(Please excuse the shaddows on the photo…we have overhead lighting and the only time I got to photograph these was at night)

I’ve discovered that, particularly on ghost prints where there is more white paper left, I can add details with water colour, water colour pens and inktense blocks, afterwards.

So so now I need to buy some more paints!
