I love adding a bit of Americana metallic paints with the regular paints when using my Gelli Arts plate! Subtle beauty!

Sue Ossenberg I have an 8x10" Gelli plate & would just love to have a larger one to cover more surface area. I have no small shapes, but there are SO many things that can be done with them. I love that they stretch my creative muscles, make it fun and easy to try new things and often yield amazing, unexpected results. I have used many of the Deco Arts paints in my gelli printing . . . I especially love experimenting with the specialty paints on my plate for amazing results!

I love to use self made plates with Gelli plate and Americana acrylics. I have added different textures to my plates using yarn for example. Also cardboard, diecuts and canvas works well. Only your creativity is the limit.

I teach a class at a long term facility and these supplies would benefit the residents tremendously❣️ Thanks for the ideas and for the opportunity.

I am seriously addicted to Gelli art printing and I would love to try these paints. I've used other DecoArt paints in the past and have always been very happy with them.

I love the Gelli plate for so many reasons! Lately I've been using the 6x6 like a stamp I mixed media projects. I paint a variety of similar colors on the plate then use a skewer to draw designs in the paint. Then I stamp the plate on my piece.

After painting up a colourful pile of gelli plate papers I like to rip and cut up the papers for an exciting collage. There is no other way to create unique collage without a gelli print.

I have so many gelli plates I can't pick a favorite! Thanks for all your inspirational ideas.

I love American copper. Love metallics in general, but copper is special.

My go to Gelli plate is the slips into my art bag easily with my papers, mark making tools, brayer and of course Americana Premium Paints. Sea Breeze is my color!!! Off for a morning of Plein Air printing on a covered picnic table! Perfect...

Oh wow! I have wanted a Gelli Plate for *so* long! I love Americana Acrylics, especially the smooth thickness of the gesso, and my favourite of all the projects are the “Summer Fun Themed Prints.” I would just adore winning this! I look forward to seeing all the collaborations!

I'm a huge fan of DecoArt. My current stash includes Americana, fluid acrylics, a couple of the misters, some of the mediums. I would love to expand that with the gelli plate and the small plates!
