Playing with Gelli Plates

Gelli PlatesWe had some fun here yesterday and put a wide variety of our papers to good use with Gelli Plates! While we all have a strong appreciation for art and creativity here at Strathmore, we don't all consider ourselves artists. Even so, we found the Gelli Plates were super approachable and a ton of fun to use with our papers!

We used the 6"x6" printing plate and the 8"x10" printing plate with a variety of found objects like rubber bands, feathers, stencils, cut papers, bubble wrap and mesh screens to create layers of colors, patterns and textures.


 Check out some of our prints:
