As part of my role as a Creative Designer for the Team I need to play with each Gel Press Plate and see what I can come up with and my head is swimming with ideas.
So Tuesday was spent prepping the area in the Studio for my marathon session including lighting the stove on Wednesday and Thursday as it was pretty cold out there and the room takes a good while to warm up.
Somebody else wanted to join me in the warm studio, but at this point, covered in cobwebs, didnt gain entry. But managed to later and left a paw print or two.
I decided that I wanted to work on the 10x8 Gel Press plate as that was a bit larger than what I am used to. Effectively it is just a wee bit smaller than an A4 sheet of paper as you can see from the image below.
For warming up I just added a few blobs of acrylic paint on the plate and smoothed them out with the brayer and textured the surface with some home made stamps and bubble wrap took a first pull and then added the dragonfly masks and some blue green paint rollered over the top
I next planned some landscapes that I had been storing in my "to do" file. And these were the outcome after embellishment
I like instant results so this method suits me well. One of my favourites is below!
My advice is go for a subject that you love...if you try to create something you do not like it will show in the finished work.

I hope to launch my website this week so that you can see some Gel Press prints that were created in this session under Recent Work and my other work.

Thats it for now
