Gelliprinting with Fresco Acrylic Paints and Infusions

A post about colormixing, for Paper Artsy this time!
That can be very messy, but o SO fun! 

I did a tutorial on mixing colors; not just different colors but also different mediums; Fresco Acrylic Paints and Infusions.
I’ve used the gorgeous Hot Picks stamp collection!

First I’ll show a step-by-step on the backgrounds, then all six cards.

Let’s go! 


Step One:  Add two tiny dots of Fresco Acrylic Paint Snowflake and Beach Hut onto a round 8” gelliplate. Mist with a tiny bit of water. Brayer it over the entire plate. I chose to not mix the colors that well.
Step Two:  Sprinkle a tiny bit of Royal Blood Infusions onto the plate; additionally mist with a tiny bit of water. Brayer over it in one direction until you are satisfied with the mixing of it. 

Step Three: Now for the fun part: pull a print.
 Additionally brayer all the inky goodness from your brayer onto cardstock. 

Step Four: Add some stamping to it, and assemble to a card.

Now for the other 3 cards: 

It's so easy to do! Just go play! 

TIP - To get a crisp stamped image on surfaces with acrylic on it, is difficult sometimes. When stamping on these backgrounds see to it that you are able to stamp multiple times with a stamping tool. I've made my own. 

The sky is the limit here, right?!

Hope you can use this as inspiration to create your own unique projects!

  4. This was a fantastic post Ellie, I especially like the ones with a bit of white on them like the glass blue one. I happened to have the infusions on my desk whilst using a gelli plate for the very first time and now I can't wait to combine them,
