"Open" Acrylics on the Gel Plate and GIVEAWAY

Many of you have worked with the GelliArts gel printing plate, and dozens of technique demonstrations are available on the GelliArts blog and elsewhere.  I don't have anything new to show you in terms of techniques.  However, I do want to show you how Golden Open Acrylics work so well with the gel plate.  They remain wet and workable for WAY longer than other acrylics, so they are ideal for gel printing, giving you time to think about and develop each print pull.

You can mix the Open acrylics with regular acrylics or acrylic mediums, and that will speed up the drying time;  for example, mix Open Manganese Blue Hue with Fluid or Heavy Body Manganese Blue Hue, and you will get a paint that dries faster than Open, but slower than regular, and at full pigment strength.  Or mix Open paint with regular matte medium or gel, and the result will dry faster than Open, and be somewhat extended (diluted).

This is the preliminary print, 10"x10".

This is the piece more developed, not sure if it is finished yet.

The preliminary print, 10"x10"


The same piece, developed further


This is a 12"x12" preliminary print.

... and the same piece with collage and paint, still in process.
 
The next three images are preliminary prints with no collage or paint added.

Here are my collateral collage sheets:


And Amelia's works in progress:

Amelia's monoprint in Manganese Blue Hue
I will be giving away a 6"x6" GelliArts gel plate, along with a few sample Golden Open Acrylics, to a random person who comments on this post.  You must be in the United States to be eligible for the drawing (ALL of the United States).  I will do the GIVEAWAY on Monday, January 13, so check back to see if you won!

WIN THIS!! (plus some paint)
PS:  if you choose to post any of these images elsewhere, please label them as works in progress.  Thanks.

  10. OMg Jane, the Gelli prints are fabulous and make me want to sit down right now and try them. Love love love the colors and designs,. I've had my plate for at least two years and haven't used it yet. Maybe I can fit that in this weekend with your inspiration. First I have to check my dungeon for my acrylic paints to see what I have. Thanks for the tutorial and the beautiful results. Please don't use my name in the drawing as I already have the 10 x 10 plate.
    Wow; love them.

  12. Wouldn't it be fun to win this? Love to see what you turn out in your sessions with the Gelli plate. I'll be checking back on Monday. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love that you included your Amelia to the Gelli plate printing! Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. BTW- Jane, what paper were you using for your finished pieces? It looked like watercolor paper or multi media paper- not sure. What type and # of paper did you use? I love the idea of the open paints- MUST TRY THIS. And I love your classes..........

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oops. Meant to mention the paper. Go to my Links page on my web site, then click on Favorite Materials. The 10"x10" and 12"x12" papers are printmaking paper, and the "junk sheets" are cheap drawing paper.

    2. Thank you. I seem to remember you having that info available but forgot where to find it.

  17. Hi Jane! I would love to give this a try! All the best, Lynn in Asheville

  18. Very nice work. I have watched your video and love your process. I have done mono printing in the past but I have not done Gelli prints before.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow !! They are all beautiful. I own some Golden Open paints and mediums that I bought when they were first introduced, but I haven't really played with them much. Time to dig them out of the drawer. And.... I would love to win the Gelli plate... it's on my wish list :-)

    ReplyDelete
  20. These are wonderful! I just got a Gelli plate for xmas and am looking forward to using it! You've just inspired me! Thanks! (glimmerbug.com)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Jane, I'm not familiar with Tulip Slick paints. Was that white Tulip Slick paint that caused the pattern because it was white? or does it have some property that causes it to act as a resist?

    Susan (again)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Great question! It is white, not a resist. The paint can be found at JoAnn Fabrics and places like that, as it is meant to be a "dimensional textile paint". It has very little pigment, so I don't use the colors for gel printing - they become too thin to express color. However, for scribbling on paper, they're great. I also used them on my "Acrylic Skins" video, which you can see here: http://janedavies-collagejourneys.blogspot.com/2013/11/book-giveaway.html

      Delete
    2. Thank you !! Next time I'm near Joanns I'll run in and get some. I did try the acrylic skin... based on your tutorial... but I used acrylic ink in an oiler boiler bottle. That came out really really well. I need to go back and watch the tutorial again.... I didn't remember that you also used Tulip Slick paint in that one. Thanks. I love your tutorials... they are extremely helpful. I'd love to see some more on layering with transparencies since I won't be able to make it to either Kansas City or Portland :-)

    3. However, I did order your DVD from Creative Catalyst and it should arrive in the mail today...... so I am really looking forward to that !!! If not today, it will definitely be here on Monday....

    Always a great video. Always wonderful work.

  29. I really enjoy your entries and have learned so much from you. Have you tried mixing the high flow acrylics? I've experimented a little with the open as well and love the results. It had not occurred to me to try mixing with the gels. Oh goody, more time to play. I don't have a chicken though... Thanks as always, Pam

    1. Well, I definitely recommend getting a chicken...

      Seriously, though, YES, I have some high-flow acrylics, and I use them in a fine-line applicator to make gestural lines. That's what I used in the second image above. Maybe I'll do a video demo on that, once I get a better handle on it.

  30. I did a spit take with my coffee when I saw Amelia making her "art" ... thanks for the chance to win.

  41. Love this video Jane as I love all your videos. This one in particular was fabulous because you shared the screen with one of your adorable chickens. She was for the most part very cooperative and creates lovely work in her own right. I especially love your color choices and now I want to go run off and make gelli prints! Thanks for your generosity and inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  42. WOW! I was just about to decide to put my gelli plates away; but now I'm inspired! These look terrific and inviting and definitely approachable. It's a new year after all. I'm not sure which I like better, your pages or Amelia's art. I've never known of an artist who paints with chickens, and I've never seen that technique demonstrated for a gelli plate before! I do love watching your videos. The only thing better is watching you in person.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your work is amazing! I would just love this to play with my kiddos ;)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I do love watching you work in these videos. You always inspire me to try things by simplifying the process to a point that makes it "doable" for me. Thanks for sharing, Jane.

  45. It's funny how someone else's gelli prints always look better than one's own LOL. I'd love to try the open paints. There's not art store that carries them within 60 miles of me so I'm unlikely to go buy any. Thanks!
    Love Amelia's footprints. I need to borrow someone's chicken so I can make some prints...

  46. Have not yet tried the Open Acrylics but they are on my short list! Thanks for sponsoring the giveaway.

  47. I'm intrigued by the Gelli Plates, as I prefer making my own backgrounds for cards and collages when possible. Yes, it would be fun to try this!! Thanks for the chance to win one!!

  53. I have taken a gel printing class but not as many mark making techniques as yours. I found on utube how to make your own gel plate like the brand you are using by using silicone gel (used in soapmaking) and the gelatin.
    Thanks for all your sharing. Barbara

  88. I like that way of "partial" printing rather than always doing collage. A tip I found for storing stencils if you haven't already heard of it is to use a scrapbook with the 12" square plastic "envelopes" for inserting pages in, the stencils fit perfectly in them, and it keeps them from getting torn up. The Michaels here had several on sale for $2.99 with 10 page protectors in them

  142. I am really excited about the multiple use of the single print image for doing a series, that would have elements of a repeating pattern dispersed throughout. Lots of fun for sure.

  143. Oh wow! I love how you think outside the box with chickens! Your practical creative can do approach encourages me to use the many unused art materials I've accumulated over the years instead of rushing out to buy more stuff....... Thankyou For everything you do and your generosity I'm totally appreciative.......

  144. Greetings from my hen Letitia. I am ready to jump in to printing multiple layers. I have done single prints using styrofoam from the grocery and am just graduating to Gelli plate printing. Very excited to watch, learn and get inspired. Thank you!
