Using a Gelli Plate with Acetate

Had a go using my Gelli plate with a piece of acetate today, with this method you are kind of working backwards so you have to train your mind with the process...

The picture really does not do this justice as the metal leaf absolutely radiates through the acrylic layers.

The Skull was first stencilled on with Black acrylic, the barbed wire, cogs, code and splats were stamped with black Stazon.
White acrylic was then painted within the scull area.

It was then time for the Gelli plate, Traditions in Raw Sienna, Quinacridone Burnt Orange, and a mix of Prussian Blue and White.

I then applied metal leaf to the reverse.

Finally I finished with acrylic in Aquamarine, Blue Green, Red Violet and White

I am loving this Gelli Printing Plate :)
