Watercolor Prints with a Gelli Plate Workshop


Wed., OCTOBER 29  9:30 – 2:30
Watercolor Prints with a Gelli Plate
with Sharon Giles – $45 partial day

Most artists use acrylics for printmaking with a Gelli Plate, but Sharon will reveal to you her watercolor secrets. You’ll produce wonderful, glowing results, intense color, and many prints — even newbies! We’ll also explore the use of masks, stencils, stamps and other texture tools. In this class, go ‘beyond basic printing’ by making simple masks, doing’ a ‘two-stage print’ for a ‘finished’ look, and a ‘direct painting print’ over a photo.

Teacher will supply: paper plates, deli paper, cardstock for making masks, stencils, stamps, texture tools, etc.

Please bring: a pad of 9 x 12″ watercolor paper, 4 to 6 tubes of watercolors (wc pans do not work), old credit card, wc brushes, paper towels, photos. Also, a Gelli Plate, brayer, hair dryer if you have them (or you can borrow).
