    Mixed Media using INK JET prints!

    I discovered this a bit by chance, experimenting with sealing Pan Pastels by pressing the piece into a Gelli Plate that was loaded with matte acrylic medium. Well guess what? The SAME technique works equally well to print an image or text with an ink jet printer then seal it by pressing it into the medium-loaded plate. It always annoys me that I can't print text with my ink jet then affix it with medium onto anything mixed media without all the ink smearing. This solves that!

    The post on my blog has some info an cleaning your plate with baby oil too - it not only improves the pull-ability of prints but gets any deeply embedded in the gelli colour to come out. \

    This is an image I printed and sealed in this way:

    and here it is affixed to a random Gelli print with acrylic medium - after being coloured with Pitt brush pens.

    There are lots more photos in the post as well as this YT slideshow thingie (I don't do proper "videos"

    I am thinking after holding off for so long that I might use my Christmas money for a gelli plate so I will be looking for all he help I can get
