Thanks for popping in. It’s Jackanory – what’s the story – again today. Since the weekend, we have been thinking about artwork we’ve created in the past which we are particularly pleased with, or which brings back good memories.
Well, here’s one, a GelPress piece, which I did way back in 2014 – over 7 years ago.
This piece reminds me of a couple of things actually….
It takes me back to when we first started making Clarity YouTube videos, Jim and I. We used to have such a laugh, and whenever I got the giggles it was game over. And he was no help at all. He just chuckled long with me! Fun though.
This Gelpress print was the first of its kind. I was having a helluva job with the Gelpress plate! It just wasn’t doing my bidding! Then I figured out how to pull a multi-layered print in one hit – and it was like magic! Pulling all the paint off in one hit on one layer using another layer of acrylic to do the job was a new thing. It was all very exciting, and mixed media artists really loved it.
Of course it wasn’t long before the world and his brother were copying the technique. But I remember the breakthrough, and whenever I see somebody using the multi-layer print technique, I think of this artwork. Here are the other Youtubes we made, using GelPress.
In fact. here’s the Youtube too!
If you fancy having a go at Gelpress Printing, we do stock what I consider to be the key shapes and sizes.
If you are going to purchase, I recommend you go for the matching acrylic Mega Mount too. It makes the GelPress plate SO MUCH MORE USEFUL!!! And we have reduced the price by 25% for you too. Plus your Craft club discounts xx
If you’re not familiar with our Claritystamp Youtube channel, there are hundreds of craft videos there, using Stamps, Stencils, Groovi and Dies. Head on over and have a look! There may be something which gets your crafty juices flowing…
