Thanks for stopping by.
We’re in Rye with my folks,
so here’s one I prepared before we left!
I had hoped to upload some pics for today’s private peek,
but it can wait till I get to a proper computer! x
I wanted to use the Clock Stencil and see if I could leave the paint to dry on the Gelli plate whilst adding layers.
Saturday’s blog a new technique. To who? To me ? To you?
Spread acrylic paint over the stencil. I blended 2 colours on the larger plate and then transferred it with the brayer.
Since the paint on the large plate was wet and useful, I decided to lay the Leafy Swirl stencil in it and start multi-tasking!
Blot it with copy paper and then remove the stencil. Leave to dry.
In the meantime, the Clockwork paint should be drying nicely.
Add Process Magenta to the large gelli piece,
and spread it over the dry swirly pattern.
Transfer some of the magenta to the clockwork project.
As you lift the paint from the larger piece, you will start to see the pattern peeping though. Process Magenta has a nice almost translucent property.
Lay some Punchinella (sequin waste) on the clock piece, and blot.
Do the same on the larger piece.
See the punchinella pattern?
Add a little turquoise in the cogs
and dab it into place with a make-up sponge.
Let it dry completely.
In the meantime, let’s bounce back to the large piece,
because that will be dry for sure.
Add some Buff Titanium directly to the gelli.
Spread it over the whole gelli with your brayer.
Lay a piece of white Gelli Card onto the wet paint, rub the back,
and pull your print.
Now for the other one, with the stencil still in place!
Remove the stencil now the paint is completely dry.,
Add a little Buff Titanium,
and spread with your brayer.
You don’t have to wash your brayer when you change colours,
by the way. Just let the layers dry.
Place your card, lining it up with the Mega Mount underneath.
You can even flip the Mega Mount and check out what it is going to look like!
Here is the final print.
The Buff Titanium pulled the lot off.
Instantly dry, too.
So there we are. Two pieces of artwork made at the same time.
Hope you enjoyed that!
I certainly had fun playing with the different colours and stencils!
