Gelli Printing on 3-D Objects!

Hi friends! I admit, I am a bit obsessed, I am not sure why I am using my Gelli Arts plates so much lately but I am finding them so addicting! I was looking for a way to dress up some packaging today and though hmmmm, “can I Gelli print on that?” Turns out I can!


Watch the video for lots of fun techniques!

1. Ink printing plate with acrylic paint and a brayer.
2. Press box to plate making sure to make full contact. You can place your hands inside the box to ensure total contact.
3. Clean up excess paint with deli or tissue paper.
4. Add more layers of printing until you are happy with the results.
