ONLINE 1-to-1 – Gelatin plate printing with Williamsburg oils and R&F pigment sticks


Monotype with Gel plates, Williamsburg Oil paints, R&F Blending Medium and Pigment Sticks



A Zoom Gel Plate Printing Workshop – Oil Paint and R&F Blending Medium

A 3-hour introductory workshop exploring the use of gel plates for making hand-pulled monotypes on paper with Williamsburg Oil paint and R&F Blending Medium. Using stencils, color shapers, brayers, and other tools, we’ll produce vibrant and layered prints without a press.

There will be a short talk about materials, a demonstration of basic techniques, time for working on your own, and then a work share for questions and discussion. You will also have access to a private FaceBook group for discussion and sharing after the workshop.

You will need to download the Zoom application and have access to the Internet.
