I’m always trying to find new ways to work with products and often what I hope to discover is something other than what the manufacturer might intend. That was the case when Sally Lynn MacDonald devised a way to use alcohol inks on a Gel Press Plate. Her work was my inspiration for today’s technique with Easy Marble. Both are solvent based and I figured if it worked with one it should with the other.
Of course you never know till you try and one thing I discovered is that Easy Marble, unlike alcohol ink, stays open long enough that I could print it directly from the plate. Later in the video you’ll see me use acrylic paint to “pick up” the dried (and in some cases not) Easy Marble like Sally Lynn does with alcohol ink. Experimenting sometimes yields fun new techniques and I’m really excited to discover that Easy Marble can be used in this manner.
Know what else is exciting?
