A New Gel Plate

I just recently discovered this 12"x12" gel plate from Gel Press. I love the size, and also the tightness of the corners.

  3. Hi Dyane, It looks like Jane is using a baren, a tool used by print-makers. Speedball makes one and is available at art suppliers or Amazon, or you could try making your own... http://www.lindagermain.com/2016/06/make-baren-relief-printing/ or...https://inkydogpress.wordpress.com/2016/03/28/alternative-ideas-for-a-printmaking-baren/. Hope this helps!

  4. Once again, thanks for sharing it all with us! Last week I took out my gelli plate and played with it; it's always the same delight!! I understand that using a different size of plate makes a pleasant change. Mine is square, so I guess my next move will be the rectangle one. I don't quite get what is the advantage of rounded corners...?
