Using a gel printing plate participants will learn best ways to apply acrylic paints and use a variety of tools for mark making, stenciling, masking and texturing to transfer onto papers. This process results in wonderful overlays of colors and patterns. We will experiment with a variety of papers including plain, pre-printed and other types of substrates.
