If you’re new to gelatin printing or if you’re experienced but not getting the results you want, this unit is for you.  It’s all the basics that will enable you to create masterful prints – skills such as how much paint to put on the plate, how to mix colors, understanding opacity, and more.

We will be putting our prints into a super cool non-destructive no-sew book:

Some things for you to know:

  • On the first of the month, you will get access to the gelatin printing lessons.  On the fifteenth of the month, you will get access to the bookbinding lessons.
  • Once you purchase this class, you have lifetime access to it.  Learn anytime and on your own schedule.
  • There are written “take aways” after every video. These are helpful (a) to reinforce learning and (b) to make finding the information you’re looking for easy.

  • A complete supply list is available to you in the classroom right now.
  • This unit is a prerequisite to any of the other “A Year of Gelatin Printing” classes.
    • Question: I’m an experienced gelli printer. Why do I have to take the prerequisite class?
    • Answer: The classes are designed for you to be successful. “Simple Acrylic Paint Monoprints” provides a shared foundation for all of us – a vocabulary that we share. I often refer to technique or ideas from this workshop in the later workshops. It’s important that we’re all on the same page.

I hope you’ll join me for a comprehensive workshop in the basics of gelatin printing.
