Last night before tea, I decided to make a few backgrounds, using the gel press and stencils.
I decided to use acrylic paint, brayered to a thin layer on the gel plate. I then lay the stencil over the top, applying slight pressure all over. Removed the stencil and brayered a small amount of white acrylic paint over the top and then took the impression. Every one is different, even when using the same colour paints. I love the final reveal and always find myself ooohing and aaahhhing over them.
For the top image I used the Funky Fossil "Lots of pips" stencil.
For the lower photo with the circles I used the Funky Fossil "In the groove" stencil.
