Birthday Fishes Gelli Print

These Birthday Fishes were made for my best friend who lives far, far away in London, England. Happy Birthday Claire!!! I made this Gelli Print in several layers of acrylic paint using a variety of mark making techniques:

  1. the background has a bubble wrap impression
  2. the teal was painted onto the plate with a brush
  3. the dark blue lines were made with an old plastic credit card that I cut ‘bristles’ into and dragged across the plate
  4. the red fish were hand painted onto the plate prior to printing.
