'Painterly Layers' on a gelli plate, so thought I should have a go as I really liked the effect. I discovered a few things:
1. You need to be quite fast (especially if your acrylic paint dries quickly) and can't take too long with each layer - don't let the paper stick to the plate either (!)
2. Using a heavy body acrylic paint is probably the best for this technique.
3. Use light colours working through to darker colours (which is a good thing to remember with any gelli layer prints).
4. I like bright colours best for this technique (although more muted colours would give a different feeling so perhaps I should try them too).
The paints I used were Pebeo studio acrylics, some with iridescent or metallic sheen to them. While these are lovely paints, they were a bit too transparent for this technique and also dried too quickly.
