Good Day, Everyone!
Welcome, welcome! Taylored Expressions has a new card making kit, and it is the gift that keeps on giving: Gel Printing Kit! Have you ever used a gel press?! I hadn’t before these projects, and let me tell you…it was an interesting adventure! :D! It’s like you can never stop making various patterns, whether that’s to layer, add more ink, or add more textures/ink! So much fun! This kit is NOW available on the TE webstore.
If you love the idea of printing your own patterns in a variety of colors and designs then you’re going to love what you can accomplish with the Gel Printing Kit! Gel press printing is a technique that uses a gel printing plate (a soft and sticky plate made out of a polymer material) and a medium, like acrylic paint or dye-based inks, to create artistic prints and patterns. Everything in this project kit was hand-selected by Gel Printing expert Lydia Fiedler to get you started creating unique gel press backgrounds for your cards!
The Gel Printing Kit retails for $69 and includes:
- One 5″ x 7″ Gel Press Plate
- Five 4 oz tubes of acrylic paint (blue, magenta, yellow, pearl metallic white and titanium white)
- 20 sheets of Gel Printing Paper (5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″)
- One 4″ Soft Rubber Speedball Brayer
- One 2 oz bottle of gel hand sanitizer (for removing paint residue from the plate)
- A hinged tin perfect for storing your Gel Press (7 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ x 1″)
Once you complete your kit purchase, you will receive an email (separate from your order confirmation email) with a link to the exclusive class video on YouTube. Watch it as often as you like and learn some great gel press printing tips and tricks while discovering inspiration for more designs!
In addition to the Gel Printing Kit, we are offering a new background stamp, several new stencil designs, and packages of Gel Printing Paper! You can use the new stamp and stencils with your gel press or for other paper crafting projects.Continue reading
