    You shouldn't have any trouble at all. Your gel print should look great on your dyed fabric as it will become your first layer. Enjoy!

    Hi Dee,
    I truely enjoyed the Gelli Print show. I have ordered the gelli tray and roller, cannot wait to start printing. I have some blocks I cut out
    for a quilt, but thought they were too dull. I ice dyed them and they turned out too light, so I am excited to make them for quilt worthy.
    Since I prepared the fabric for dying, I shouldnt have a problem with the gelli prints on that same fabric should I? (question)
    Thanks,
    Karen

    Shelley,
    Thanks for the reminder of the cyan and magenta. I use those all the time in my quilting and color classes. I guess I was using paint and had a moment of forgetfulness. Good suggestions. Thank you.

    Judith,
    The gelatos are a marking tool that you could use on your gel plate but it is not the same as a gel plate. If you use a marker or paint that is not permanent you need to use a fabric medium with it, and depending on the product it can be heat set. Enjoy trying out a gel press. It is quite fun.

    Thanks for this video- the technique is fascinating! One tip- when mixing paints, try using turquoise(cyan) and magenta instead of blue and red for your primary colors. I learned this from joen wolfrom’s workshops and have had much less “muddy” colors when I use those instead. If I want them muddy, I can add gray and that works well too.

    Hi Dee, enjoyed your class for the Gelli Prints. I had previously heard of, but not seen it in use. Some day when I get moved, as you have, and resettled I will give it a try. I think most all of your prints today were quite good and had possibilities. Thanks for all your great ideas. Judy in Virginia

    Questions:
    Dee, I was recently given a set of Faber Castell Gelatos. Is this the same thing as Gelli Prints? Could the Gelatos be used like gelli prints?
    Also, are the gelli prints colorfast?

    Thank you,
    Judy
