Gelli Arts Gel Printing is a non-perishable and non-toxic mono-printing plate that delights artists of all ages. Mixed media and stencil over gelli printing provide easy access to powerful symbolic imagery over rich atmospheric grounds. When many prints are made over a short period of time, interesting images can emerge, as barriers to self-expression fall away.
