The book that got Jamie Malden involved with Gelli-printing and why she thinks you will love it too.
Jamie Malden of Colouricious loves to play with block prints and has discovered that Gelli plates can add a new dimension; want to know how? well she feels that Hilary Beattie really shows you how in her book – they met when Hilary was busy rummaging in the hedgerows for leaves.
And who knew that a potato masher could be so useful? or indeed bubblewrap (other than snapping the air out of it that is!); there are various chapters in the book but the one of stencils and masks was of particular interest to Jamie as she felt that lent itself to her own use of stencils with blockprinting.
The book encourages you and your friends/family to take time to play with everyday objects, a gelli plate and some paint.
and if you want to purchase some gelli plates then just go to the Colouricious website – click here – where you will also find fabric paints, printing blocks, stencils.
