Gel Printing w/ Cyndi Kuhn



Gel printing on fabric is a type of monoprint that uses a gelatin plate to press an image onto fabric. The process is similar to gel printing on paper, and the same techniques can be used for both.  So you will be able to create your own unique fabric art and more.

Are amazing gel prints random guess work? Nope. But it can feel that way if you dont know the fundamental principles. Color is a huge part of making prints, especially avoiding mud. But there are ways to use the entire rainbow, all at once, and not make mud. 

 

Words are one of my favorite elements to use in my art…but I dont like my handwriting.  Creating words on a gel plate lets me go right around this!  We will use stencils, stamps, and random  everyday items to make designs on your prints.  Cyndi will provide lots of options.

This is all about play and experimenting, the process of letting go, and gel printing and paining on fabric. You don’t have to be an “ARTIST” to be successful.  Gel printing is fun and a bit addicting!!

       The workshop fee includes fabric, a gel plate (6 x 6 or 5 x 7) and a brayer.

      There will be a variety of acrylic paints for you to use, but feel free to bring your own favorite colors.  Any brand of acrylic or craft paint works,  No need to buy expensive brands.

      You will want to have a apron to protect your clothing. And if you do not like getting paint on your hands, disposable rubber gloves are a good idea.

      You will also learn how to clean and care for your gel plates.

By the way, almost anything works on gel plates, inks, watercolors, Posca markers,  oil sticks, tempura sticks, stamp pad ink, etc. Cyndi will have lots of options for you to try before you invest your own money.
