More Jelly Experiments

4 Nov

I’m continuing top experiment with gel plate printmaking using a Gelli Arts plate. Today I tried it with Essdee block printing ink, staying with Daler Rowney cartridge paper (90gsm) for consistency,

essdee 10

The Essdee inks are easy to use, roll out nicely and take a good texture from bubblewrap and scrunchy tissue paper. The ink prints easy with a firm hand rub but leaves a faint and disappointing ‘ghost’ or secondary image. It cleans off easily with babywipes.

      Thanks Phil. I am learning to refine as I go along. I might try with Caligo oil inks next

    These are looking great – I’ve been intending to try out gel plates, but haven’t quite got there yet!
