Gelli Plate Printing - giveaway

The Gelli Plate has taken the art world by storm and has created a whole new category of addictive behavior. Anybody who has used one of the Gelli Plates knows just how much paper and paint one can go through in a session of printing. This product is not only useful and innovative...it is fun!

And now the developer of the Gelli Plate, Joan Bess, has released a new book Gelli Plate Printing: Mixed-Media Monoprinting Without a Press. Consider this the definitive guide to Gelli Plate printing in terms of instruction, ideas, and projects. 




I asked Joan to share a bit about how the development of the Gelli Plate came about and she had this to share with the readers of The Altered Page:

Years ago I fell in love with gelatin printing and the fascinating range of monotypes it creates. I loved everything about the process...except the gelatin! Too many negatives for me. So I looked for a convenient, permanent, durable, shelf-stable gelatin-like replacement. It didn't exist! The obvious answer was to find a way to create the monoprinting plate I was obsessed with having.

The pivotal moment came when I invited my friend. Lou Ann Gleason, a seasoned businesswoman with virtually no art experience, to my studio to print on gelatin. She LOVED it! When I proposed joining forces to find a way to make a better printing plate - she immediately said "YES"! She could envision so many people wanting this! 

We formed our company, Gelli Arts, LLC - and a year later, launched our Gel Printing Plate. Thanks to Nancy Kelly, our social media expert, word traveled quickly across the Internet and Gelli printing spread like wildfire! When Tonia Jenny, from North Light Books, approached me and asked if I was interested in writing a 'techniques' book about Gelli printing, I jumped at the opportunity! And here it is!

In the book, Joan introduces a series of approaches that will take your printing to another level. She reviews stencils, masks, rubber and foam stamps, natural materials, rubbing plates, rollers, rubber bands, tape, contact paper, molding paste, gel medium resist, dimensional paint, and so much more.

In addition, the book includes a contributor gallery of art showing how different artists use the Gelli Plate. I am honored to have been asked by Joan to be part of that group and I created The Climb.




----------------------------------

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I made no secret I wanted a Gelli plate from the first time I saw how one was used nearly four years ago. After asking everyone for one several years in a row, I gave up and bought one myself. It took my entire craft budget for the year, but I was so happy when I got it.

Then a funny thing happened. I didn't like it after I spent all that time begging for it and all that money on it. I'm hoping, if I win this book, it would help me get interested again in something I felt I would love those many years ago.

elle said...

I have a stack of loose papers with ideas for the wonderful Gelli plate. A book is certainly a must have. Don't listen to those others, Seth. ME! ME! aw, sorry to shout. ;~)

Gelli printing has become my favorite thing to do when I want to zone out and relax. Anytime I'm stressed or just don't know what to do, I pull out my gelli plate and I can lose 4, 5, or even 6 hours in my craft room. I think having this book would be the perfect accompaniment to this process. Seth, thank you so much for offering this to your fans! MWAH!!

I have made my own gelli plate but didn't know how to store it and it dried up. I think I could use a new one and some ideas of how to use it??? and learn how to store it.

I have seen several blog posts and watched many videos and have been seriously thinking about getting into gelli printing. I would love a copy of the book and start printing soon. Thank you for sharing. Congrats also on being included with the artists, that's wonderful.
