We used 12" deli paper to print on with acrylic paints that were brayered on to the gelli plate. It's perfect to adhere to a firmer substrate or to collage with matte medium, as it can be translucent. A quick trip to a restaurant supply store is in my future next week! We also used a lot of stencils for patterns. In 6 hours, I made about 50 prints. I only tossed two. (Shhhh...don't tell Kari; she thinks you can salvage anything...but when you put the alphabet stencil down backwards, it's not too usable, LOL.) I am loving my stack of papers! Here is just a very small sampling.
Here are two of my favorites. The first aspen trees is the final "cleanup" image. Often the cleanup image is a sacrifice, just to get the plate clean for the next set of colors. But I love how it turned out. The second has a warm glazing over it. I had never used acrylic glazing medium (you add just a drop of paint to tint it). It is a wonderful thing! I added the stamped words in copper embossing when I got home: "Oh good gigantic smile of the old earth this autumn morning" (Browning).
