Default Stamping on gelli plate

Have any you used on rubber stamps and dye inks on your gelli plates?
After watching the following videos I'm inspired to give it a try. I heard permanent inks will stain your plate so I'll use Distress inks an other water soluble products

Wow, I had heard that the initial warnings about not using ink on Gelli plates was out the window, but I have never tried ink on a plate myself.

I've not done much with my plates for a while, because I got sick of setting up my table for paints. But watching inks being used on the plates makes me think of pulling them out again. It's amazing how long she worked on the BG and the ink just sat there. And the results were gorgeous!

Thanks for posting that, Bohodiva!

This evening I made some stencil prints on my gelli plate. Instead of using acrylics I used some powdered pigments and distress mini ink pads. I applied the colors on top of the stencil and took 3 prints of each in each medium... I really like the results.

Wander around your house (and garage, Kathy). You would be surprised at what you would find that would make an interesting impression on a plate. You just have to look things with fresh eyes.

True, Robin. Why spend money when I'll bet I can find some cool stuff!

Some inks will probably stain, for example:

My plate was brand new only used once and laying out on a sink counter to dry. Not so DH laid his newspaper down on it to wash his hands and I still have part of a newspaper article stain on my plate.

If it stains the clear stamps I'm not going to use in my plate. I would stay away from STAZON and other permanent inks when applying them to the gelli.

I knew I forgot something


Something that has occurred to me is I now have a surface large enough to do reverse image stamping with some of my larger stamps. Haven't had a need to try it yet but am keeping it in mind for the future.

Trying to think of what I've used for designs or texture:

- Net bags that onions and oranges come in, not that I buy them that way, but somehow I have some netting
- Crumpled cling wrap
- One of my all time faves, though I didn't have one - an instructor at an LSS gave it to me is one of those old fashioned plastic hair rollers with points with the C-shaped plastic cover. I've used it - gently - by rolling it, by using the round end, by using the C-end of the cover, dragging, etc.
- Plastic lids from anything, and paper towel or toilet paper rolls - the ends, in circles or squashed some
- Eraser ends of pencils
- Glue gun glue designs; let the glue swirl onto a craft mat in loops or any shape and dry. They're fairly permanent or will last a long time.
- Combs if you're careful

Lots more but my head is filled with Oxide inks. so these are the only ones that pop into the old brain...

I'm been wanting to try making stencils with the glue gun, another techniques on my never ending list,
Come to think about it I have some hair rollers tucked away somewhere...

There you go. ; )

And those glue gun wiggles (for lack of a better term)? You can just use them to press into the paint. When doing some types of Gelli plate projects at The Queens Ink, they set out Gins of stuff you can use to make marks - that's how I got my beloved hair roller - and they had a bin filled with glue stick wiggles,

Now I want to make some... I haven't used a glue gun in years, but think I have one somewhere.

Its been on my mind to try printing on a small canvas board from the gelli plate.
Have you tried it?

Yes, but I wasn't thrilled with my result, and it's harder to do double/triple pulls with it than with unwaxed deli paper, copier paper, CS - which are all so much cheaper to ruin! LOL

I'd have to plan it better, or adhere prints to it in more of a collage.

One print would be alright and would make a good base for collage... I'll play around with it since I already have them.
I like the impressions lifted with tissue/deli paper...
A friend told me she'll sell my cards at her next show on March 11.
So I need to FOCUS on construction of cards with all these prints! I hope to have at least a dozen ART cards to give her... but, there are some many techniques I want to experiment with...

Yes, get to work, young lady! LOL How neat to have that already happening! I wonder about some of the note cards/envelopes like in the video too. Even some not-so-hot prints looked so great!

I tried the 'trace & then cut out a design on corrugated cardboard' technique and was disappointed. The top layer of paper I cut and peeled off wasn't thick enough. The leaves I had so carefully cut around did not leave an impression, I got lines from the cardboard but none of my design. I think I'm going to try die cutting and gluing onto the corrugated cardboard next time maybe even making a double layer of my cuts.

I revisted the video and thought about using fun foam cut outs (layered on top of one another depending on the thickness of foam) to layer on top of the cardboard base...

You can use the fun foam on carpet tape to adhere it. I've done it and it works well.


Printing with Gelli ArtsŪ: Making Foam Texture Plates for Gelli Printing!

The best paper for cutting out masks and shapes is Tyvek because it holds up. If someone has sent you a USPS Priority envelope, then you have Tyvek, because that's what it's made of.

Thank for sharing. I keep those envelopes for mailing, but its time to cut them up for crafting.

One of the posts had mentioned keeping the gelli plate clean. I've only used dye inks and acrylic inks so my plate is still clean but I had questioned an instructor about alcohol inks and she told me I could use them as long as I spread some hand sanitizer on the plate that had alcohol in it (I think most do). before using the alcohol ink. Then after use, just to clean it off with soapy water. I'm not sure if this answers any question but I've put it out there.I'm very new to his whole technique.

I hear you, so much to try and so little time to do it in. It would be great if families came with their own care kits.

Good question... Do they have permanent properties?

I am not going to use any permanent inks products on my gelli. I like it clean.

I hear you - I'm an oxide-head too. The inks aren't permanent - can be reactivated with water, but if I used them on my plate it would be very sparingly because it would be such an expensive way to go. I have a feeling re-inkers will be part of Oxide ink-heads' futures.

I don't know if they'd stain. I brought my set to an Oxide ink class with blending pads velcroed underneath each one. In the rush to pack up at the end of the class, I didn't stamp off remaining ink, so some "stamped" on top of the ink pad below since they were stacked four high.

I asked Ranger how to remove the ink and was told a baby wipe should do it since the ink isn't permanent. Nope. Not that it really matters.

But lots of people don't wash their Gelli plates, just do a final cover of paint to pull off what they can. For some reason white paint often does the trick and some beautiful ghost prints or parts of prints can be found. The cover of my favorite mini book is from one of those white-on-leftovers jobs. : )

Please ignore this if you don't want to be enabled. Art Foamies are terrific on Gelli Plates. And cloth. Big, thick, foam stamps. I have a few patterned ones, a feather and a terrific crow. Their slogan: If it doesn't move, stamp it.

Featured Products

I had written to them to ask a question, mentioned I was going to post, and was given a 10% off code to give to y'all.

"Please accept the following coupon code to share. You are welcome to use it as well.

A little more info/hints - About Us - ARTFOAMIES

P.S. They're updating the site, and if it says they include a "stamp buddy" with every stamp, they don't.

Another enable (sorry!). Tim Holtz just came out with several sets of foam alphas specifically for paint - not that you couldn't ink them up, but foam just makes a great paint stamp. What's unusual is that they're thin and are cling, like regular stamps. Usually foam stamps are really big.

You can see him demo-in them at about 48:00 on this video. Of course they can be used for regular stamping with paint too, not just on Gelli plates. 2017 sneak peek ? idea-ology part 2? | Tim Holtz

Google "Tim Holtz cling foam stamps" or "Tim Holtz foam alpha stamps" or the like and a bunch of places that sell them will pop up at various price points, about $9 or $10 a set.

As we all know stamps are made as a reverse images, the added action of pulling reverses your image again, so stamps on a gelli print will end up backwards on your pull. BTW, same with stencils.

hmmm... well that was clear as mud, sorry daylight savings & not enough coffee yet I guess, hopefully ya'll get what I'm saying.
