Techniques and projects for using a gel plate to elevate collage, art journaling, and mixed-media works, from acclaimed teacher Robyn McClendon

Gel plate printing, a simple, inexpensive, and accessible yet often-overlooked tool, gives artists of any level a way to add exceptional qualities to their work. Here, mixed-media lovers learn over 25 techniques for enhancing their work.

Author and acclaimed teacher Robyn McClendon is a popular mixed-media instructor and stencil/stamp designer, with art in museum collections including the Smithsonian and MoMA. In this book she shares techniques that combine organic methods rooted in art, nature, and meditative expressionism, such as mark making, eco-dyeing, and scripting. Each chapter builds upon the previous one, and you learn to mix and match the techniques to create surfaces that are different than any you've made before.

Book highlights include:

• Two bonus mylar stencils, designed exclusively for the book by McClendon, on the inside back cover

• Over 25 techniques to combine, such as “Mark Rothko Style,” Glazing and Vintage Photo Silvering, Eco-staining, and Intuitive Collage

• Video links provided for the techniques featured

• McClendon's unique "ArtMythos Inspirations" sections throughout, to help your printing express your inner world, using guiding questions and reflection points

Elevate your work by adding a simple gel plate to your mixed-media tools.
