Gelli Printing With Arteza Paints! Product Review

Hi All!

I wanted to share with you a product review that I just posted on my YouTube channel.

I’m Gelli printing with the Arteza Acrylic Paints in my Rolodex aka Gelodex structure and love them!

They are ideal for Gelli printing because of the formulation being highly pigmented with a nice amount of tack.  Not a lot of water in these paints at all and yet they a priced very affordably.

Please check out the video and Enjoy!

ArtMythos: Look At What We’ve Been Up To…

I’m so excited to share what the members of my ArtMythos Online Course have been up to. We spend a lot of time over in our secret Facebook group sharing and talking about all things art. Here are some snippets of those conversations.

Enjoy!

Some gorgeous examples of what some of our members created these past few months!

Artwork by Celia Fulton Walden

“Still loving those ink blots. I am starting to think that these inked papers and the organic ink blots are helping me make a bridge between how I work sculpturally. Fingers crossed! At least I’m having fun.” – Celia Fulton Walden

 

Artwork by Lynda Fish

“I used to paint doors, walls and windows with encaustic (wax) paints… experimented in my journal with gelli prints instead. Writing on walls! Plus some other experiments using torn paper ensos and ink blots.” – Lynda Fish

 

Artwork by Tammy Swafford

“I found some envelopes to Gelli print on and created an envelope book. Here’s some pics!” – Tammy Swafford

(This technique was shown to my students in one of our”studio video series” inside of our ArtMythos: classroom!)

 

Artwork by Lisa Rene Aguilera

“Here are some reverse/resist inkblots I made while experimenting with resist fluid. I used a photocopy of a black & white napkin design, put some marks down with the clear fluid, folded the paper in half to make my inkblot, waited for it to dry, then went over the entire paper with distress stains. Lots of love to you all!”

I’ve been sharing my love of inkblots with the ArtMythos: members and they are doing some incredible experimentations and beautiful techniques of their own!

“Really beautiful. Such a soothing palette.” – Celia Fulton Walden

“Today’s pages and Sumi-e paper and ink experiments.” – Celia Fulton Walden

 

Artwork by Tammy Swafford

“Finished the Clean-Up Journal. I would like you (Robyn Mcclendon) to know that I really appreciate you telling your story in today’s video. Your prompts always make me think and approach my art in new ways. I did a few prints today, and I really like what’s going on in the paper from the hardware store. I have also included pictures from my finished journal.” – Tammy Swafford

 

Artwork by Maryse Perdriat

“My first prints with Gelli plate on deli paper, craft paper and copy paper. What great fun!!!” – Maryse Perdriat

Even my members who are new to Gelli printing are doing beautiful and organic prints using my techniques that make experimenting with this monoprinting process equally rewarding.

 

Artwork by Lisa Rene Aguilera

“Hi there! I have been working on a few different projects, and finally got one finished! I wanted to share here in a flip-thru.” – Lisa Rene Aguilera

“Awesome. You have really inspired me! Thanks for sharing.” – MaryJo Dahl

 

Artwork by Helen Buiskool

“A few of my recent pages. Just playing…” – Helen Buiskool

 

Artwork by Lynda Fish

“Some playful explorations in my journal… mixing in old watercolors, acrylics, feathers etc with Gelli printing because I love the old wall effect.” – Lynda Fish

“These are gorgeous, Lynda! Such rich color.” – Lisa Rene Aguilera

 

Artwork by Vicki Louise Neil Ross

“Great play day with art group! Did four journal pages! BTW, the Zen Pen is great!” – Vicki Louise Neil Ross

 

Artwork by Dawn Nowacki

“Hi, all! This is a short video flip through of my Robyn-inspired journal.  Thank you for all the inspiration, gang. I’ve been appreciating everybody’s posts. And thank you, Robyn, for the class! Hugs, Dawn.” – Dawn Nowacki

“Love!!! The one on left. Reminds me if East Indian batik prints!” – Vicki Louise Neil Ross

Gelliplate Layers- Video

Today I was working in the studio on layers…creating a rich depth of color and texture in my work…

One of my favorite tools for this, believe it or not is the Gelliplate…

I decided to create a short video to show you how I do it….

My biggest tip to create rich texture and color in 2-3 pulls is to begin with a dirty plate, (one in which you left old paint to dry from a previous session)…this is 50% of what makes this technique successful…

Enjoy❣

  
Much Love and Peace…
