A Girl Named Copper Gel Press Print

I love soft hues and as many of you know, I love my Gel Press plates. Oh the creative possibilities are endless. I even love the smell of a new Gel Press plate. Sounds weird, but true. It’s like the feeling you got as a kid when you opened and smelled a new can of playdoh. I’m excited to share the below video with you.

Recently I was in the craft store and found this stencil and printmaking paint, but it was called a creme. I thought to myself, I wonder how that would react on a Gel Press plate. Oh to my delightful surprise, I love it. It added texture, dried at a good speed, and allowed me to pull texture from my plate. I originally had picked up a couple of colors to play with and after my experiment, went back to get a three more. They were on sale. I’m in love.
