To say I’m a fan of Gel Press is… well, a pretty big understatement.
I enjoy working with the various sized and shaped plates and have created some really interesting prints using them. You’ll imagine my delight when I learned about the new Impressables; 7″ x 7″ plates with an embossed design built right into the gel.
Meant to be used both as a static print plate that lays on a surface and a stamp when mounted on an acrylic block, Impressables offer unlimited creative options. The initial release features four designs and in today’s video I’ll show you some interesting options for using them.
Unlike most of the time where I have learned that a thin layer of paint is better, with the Impressables it’s not quite the same and I often find myself applying paint heavier than usual. Once you play with them I think you’ll find that they’re a fabulous tool to have in your studio.
