DIY Texture Effects with Gel Press by Keri Sallee

Good Morning Creatives!

Today I have a video tutorial for you!!

One of the best things about using Gel Press® plates for mono-printing is the ability to add tons of textures and colors in thin layers to achieve a BIG impact in a short amount of time.

As a Gel Press® Junkie, I am always looking for new and fun ways to add texture to my Gel Press® prints.

Today, I am going to show you how you can create your own unique texture plates and take your Gel Press® journey even further!

Supplies

For this project, you will need:

  • Any Gel Press® Plate
  • Self-Adhesive Foam (found in the craft department)
  • Scissors
  • Blunt Instrument (like a mechanical pencil without the lead up)
  • Fluid Acrylic like DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics
  • Brayer
  • Scrap Wood
  • Optional: Sizzix or other die cut machine with thicker dies (most thin metal wafer dies won’t cut through foam)

Closing Thoughts

I hope you today has inspired you to think beyond what you usually grab when you are making Gel Press® prints. Think BIGGER. Think BOLDER. Think UNIQUER. (ok…that’s not a word, but you get the point! LOL)

This is your chance to make your mono prints even more a reflection of you and your personal style.

Have fun and I can’t wait to see where you take this inspiration!

Until next time!

XOXO,

Keri Sallee
