DT Susan here on the CDD blog. I am here for another tutorial for marbling with alcohol inks. This time using a Gelli Plate because I am not that good with a blender! Yes I shot this card hanging over the edge of my pool because my Jaws dude is riding a big wave lol!!!
For this project I used my 5x7 Gelli Plate and three shades of alcohol ink: turquoise, stream and bottle and the silver and gold mixatives. I also used a Catalyst Wedge by Princeton to move the inks around the plate and a straw. I used Yupo paper. You can also use Glossy Paper but you cannot use just plain paper of any kind as the inks will bleed right through.
So first I set up my Gelli Plate and added some ink!
Then I moved it around with my Catalyst Wedge or you could use a credit card.
Then I just pressed a piece of Yupo onto the Gelli Plate and gently patted it to get the first print. You can go back and reprint pieces that have dried.
This is the first print that I did and I added to it later on in the process once it was dry.
