It is a Katie and Loni Doing Stuff episode, yay! It feels like it has been forever since we have done one so The Gals were excited to record. We have been wanting to do gelli plates for some time but because they are not what we would call inexpensive this has always been a subject be put off. That is until this week when Katie found a recipe to make your own gelli plates! Listen in as The Gals play around with this new-to-them medium and joke about all the stuff they normally joke about.
Check out the beautiful Pintrest board for this episode here.
You can find the recipe for temporary and permanent homemade gelli plates we used here the Craft Test Dummies website. There is an instructional video on how to make them, but trust us; this is easy as can be.
Don’t you worry, vegan friends and listeners, we found a recipe using agar agar and a nice article explaining the differences in each kind of gelli plate you can make here.
The Gelli Arts blog has an overwhelming supply of ideas and tutorials. This tutorial about using found textures is one of our favorite.
Keeton’s Online has an article filled with helpful information about how caring for your gelli plate here.
We took a few pictures of the prints The Gals were making while recording this episode!
