Today I'm sharing one of the challenges for the #marchprintingchallenge hosted by Gelli Arts on Instagram.
Day 7 is transparent and so I thought it was a good time to try out the tape transfer technique.
I started by stencilling and doodling on the gel plate.
When the paint was completely dry I lay sticky tape across the plate and smoothed it down, before slowly peeling it off, one strip at a time. The tape was still sticky enough for me to fix it to a little glass bottle. If you wanted to store them for future use you would have to dust the back with mica powder.
I coloured the top with alcohol markers and wrapped around gold thread.
The light still shines through...just...
I was pleased with how the transfer worked out. Don't know why it's taken me so long to try it!
Thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a lovely day xx
