Gelli Printing With Wood Masher
Lynda here again with a short post about gelli printing with another one of my kitchen tools - a wood masher.
For this design, I covered the gelli plate with blue paint. I then dipped the masher into red paint and proceeded to stamp it on the plate. I also made sure to push down on the masher to remove some of the blue paint so the white fabric would show through.
And here is that print. That white line on the right is from a string that was on the plate. I planned to cut this up so it didn’t make any difference.
I thought this piece would make a great fabric bracelet.
I cut out a piece 1½ inches wide and long enough to fit around my wrist, and backed it with felt. I then hand stitched it including the blanket stitch around the entire piece, added a button, and stretchy wire for closure.
Gelli printing is so much fun and so easy. I hope these posts have encouraged you to try this. It's really quite addicting!
