This is NOT a workshop centered around a Gelli Arts Plate, which I know you've done recently. In this newest workshop artists will learn a variety of processes to produce gorgeous backgrounds, mono-prints and one-off works of art. We will utilize OPEN acrylics, QoR Watercolor paints, Gelli Arts Printing Plates, Plexiglass Printing Plates, along with artist participant designed collagraph printing plates utilizing various gels and mediums. Prints will be “pulled” on a selection of papers including Arches 88 watercolor paper. This is a two day workshop as we will need an overnight period to allow our “printing plates” sufficient time to dry. Necessary paints will be supplied, however participants are encouraged to bring their own “Gelli Arts" plate, brayer and a selection of papers to print on if they have them already in their possession. Participants may also wish to bring their own “Stencils” in order to have a greater variety of imagery at their disposal. Additionally you will need to bring a few old magazines rich in imagery that you can cut up with the scissors you will also need to bring in order to learn how to make some really cool stencils. Additional Arches 88 paper along with Dura-Lar plates will be available for purchase at nominal fees should the artist wish to print a larger selection of imagery and or have printing plates for further exploration back in their personal studios. We will also make a faux gold leaf material as an addendum to the the "Bling" workshop of 9/19 as we will have more time during this two day event.
