What’s inside DECEMBER Red’s Art Cart!

Gelli print

The festive month has arrived well and truly and the Art Cart had to have a festive feel to it. So Mrs Red went for something a bit more art & crafty and nothing says fun like some Gelli Printing!

Gelli printing has been around since 2011 but really only became popular around 4 years ago when the art journaling movement went up a notch. The actual Gelli Plate is made from mineral oil and is a hypoallergenic polymer material, not gelatin as many would think. The Gelli plates are easy to clean and as long as they are looked after, will last many years to come!

The Student Gelli Kit comes with 5”x5” gelli plate, 2 x stencils and a brayer/roller. Then, Mrs Red has included a concertina art journal and 3 samples of acrylic paint. I imagine most of my Art Cart’ers already have a stash of acrylic paints but still wanted to include some paints in the Cart.

Art Journal
I drew this portrait over the top of one of the printing pages in the concertina booklet. A combination of oil pastel, zest-it blend and black marker pens.

Make sure you check out the YouTube video’s below to see the Gelli Plate in action and if you want to subscribe to the Art Carts then please follow the links on this website. The contents of each months cart is a big secret that only my suppliers and myself know about. For you, it cuts out the decisions of what art materials to buy, finding the time to buy them and to explore products you would never select yourself. There is never anything wrong with having too many art supplies!

Finally, if you have purchased this cart, please show us your artworks via Instagram or the Facebook page which is mentioned on your information card inside your cart.

I look forward to seeing what everyone does with the Gelli printing!

Mrs Red
