If you have ever tried to use Distress Paint on a gel plate, you may have noticed that due to the consistency of the paint, it separates or kind of beads up on the plate. Which can be a awesome look but what if you wanted a more solid look?
With the addition of gel medium, artist gel or clear gesso you can get the paint to behave the way you want it to and create this card along with me.
In part 1 of the video below, I show you my process for making gel plate prints using Distress Paints.
