Gel plates offer a multitude of options for low-tech printmaking. Whether new to gel printing or experienced, this class goes beyond making patterns and impressions to drawing and painting on the plate to create prints with specific imagery. Learn simple techniques for transferring images to the plate for printing, layering, masking and brushwork. No drawing skills are necessary, but use of personal sketches, drawings of any subject, or other source material is welcome and encouraged.
Level: Intermediate – Familiarity with acrylic painting or gel plate printing is recommended.
