Lots of us have gelli plates stashed away in our studios wondering how to use them with polymer. Enter Syndee Holt hobbled by an injury with time on her hands. The happy outcome of her mashup – not the ankle, but the combination of rubber stamp, polymer, paint and gelli plate – is the technique used on these darkly subtle metallic pendants shown on Facebook.
Syndee will be teaching her method at Fandango in Florida in May (not sure if there are open spots). While she’d much rather not have had the injury, it’s given her a double shot of creative juices.
And no, a gelli plate is not the serving dish for jellyfish.
So, for those of us who DON’T have a gelli plate at home, what is it?
Syndee’s new technique has me really excited as I just got a gelli plate and a brayer and am so anxious to try it out!
