Fun with Printing

I enjoyed Saturday’s geli plate printing workshop so much that I ordered myself a geli plate and roller, and bought myself four tubes of paint – the best our tiny local branch of WHSmith had to offer. I then rootled around in various drawers and our recycling crate for anything I could use to make interesting effects and textures, and yesterday afternoon I borrowed the kitchen worktop and turned it into a mini art studio.

And yet again I’ve been blown away by the results. Fair enough I’m still experimenting with colour combinations and the different effects, but the prints are easily good enough to frame or use as greetings cards, so I’m really pleased.

Although I’m still giggling at this particular print. Chucking three elastic bands onto the plate at random has produced a pattern that looks worryingly like handcuffs. I hope nobody reads anything untoward into that!


Fiona lives in a slate cottage within stone-throwing distance (never a good idea in Glass houses...) of England's largest lake. She enjoys history, gardening and photography, and rarely has her nose far from the pages of a book - or a cup of tea.
