Gel Plate Printmaking

What is Gel Printing?

Gel printing, also known as gel press or monoprinting with a gel plate, is a form of printmaking that allows artists to produce beautiful, one-of-a-kind prints. This technique involves applying paint to a gel plate, creating textures and patterns, and then pressing paper or fabric onto the plate to transfer the design. It’s simple, fun, and perfect for experimenting with different colors and compositions.

What is a Gel Press?

A gel press is a reusable printing plate made from a gel-like substance that captures fine details and textures, making it an ideal tool for monoprinting. The flexible nature of the gel press allows for easy manipulation of paints and inks, enabling both novice and expert artists to create stunning artworks with minimal equipment.

What Kind of Paint Do You Use on a Gel Press?

For optimal results on a gel press, we recommend using acrylic paint. It offers a wide range of vibrant colors and a perfect consistency for spreading and blending on the gel surface. Acrylic paint dries quickly and adheres well to various surfaces, making it the ideal choice for gel printing.
