About This Class

In this video I will take you through the steps to create a stylized terrarium artwork using a Gel Press and acrylic paint. A Gel Press ( is a fantastic tool used by many mixed media artists to create textured artworks, mono prints and patterns. Often you are left with a pile of beautiful patterned paper and no idea what to do with them. This tutorial will show you how to use some of these patterned papers and push your gel prints further to create a finished artwork. These techniques can be incorporated into other projects as well.

Materials needed:

Gel press (aka Gellipress) printing block

Acrylic paints of your choice

a brayer to spread the colours smoothly

Paper to print on
