So I make a lot of Gelli Plate Packing tape. I just love this as a way to clean my plate when I have finished a gelli printing session. (who am I kidding, I don’t actually clean my plate, lol. I really like to just make the tape). So during a class I was teaching on Mono Printing I had the idea to see if I could stamp on the gelli plate with ink rather than paint and see if I could lift it off with the packing tape. Well I tried it and it worked.
Here are two pieces that have done using this process. Sorry for the glare it is not easy to get a photo of the shiny tape.
and a close up of the skeleton.
If you are interested in the process you can find the original gelli plate packing tape transfer video here: Gelli Arts Youtube
I uploaded a new video to You Tube and it shows this technique.
You can watch the process here
