How To print with a Gel Print Plate

Start by applying and rolling acrylic or craft paint onto the plate using a sturdy roller. Experiment with diverse materials,. Items may include stencils, natural craft such as leaves and flowers and found objects. Also use tools to craft captivating shapes, textures, or patterns, or mask out areas of the inked surface for added intrigue.

Remember to avoid digging into the Gel Plate’s surface; instead, work with and manipulate the paint. Once the surface is inked, cover it with a sheet of paper and gently rub over to transfer the print onto the paper, revealing your unique creation.

  3. Once most of the paint is gone, simply use a damp cloth or paper towel to gently wipe the plate clean.
  4. Store your Gel Print Plate in its packaging to keep it safe until next time.
