Sharing Blue Gel Print Play Time session. I needed to make some blue prints for a swap and decided that I would record the session as inspiration. It seems every time I sit down to play with my Gel Press I get awesome backgrounds that are always unique.

Supplies used for the Blue Gel Print Play Time.
- 8 x 10 Gel Press
- 5 x 7 Gel Press
- Craft Paint, Acrylic Paint
- Book pages
- Copy Paper
- Heat tool
For this Blue Gel Print Play Time session I used the 8 x 10 and the 5 x 7 gel plates. Having both plates out at the same time is kind of fun. Some of the prints can match in color but have different designs.
Begin by laying out the Gel Press on a clean surface. I like using the Ranger Craft mat under mine. Since it can get messy I like how easy it is to clean up when I’m done.
Craft paint and artist grade paints were used for this Blue Gel Print Play Time session. I like mixing the different types of paint on a gel print. Interesting patterns and colors form. Sometimes there is an issue with the paint being too runny, that happened to me when I was using a light blue paint. But I just went ahead and let it play out and see what happened.
Stamps and stencils are great mark making tools. Laying down a layer of paint and then a stencil is so fun. Some of the prints I would just lay color down without any marks. Then create a layer of paint with a stencil over the first print. It looks so cool!
Take some time to sit down and play. Let the colors call to you and don’t worry if it doesn’t turn out the way you think. It is about playing and letting go of that inner critic.
