About this Course


Are you frustrated with the fact that you have the Gel Plate but haven't mastered it? 

Are you afraid to even open it? 

This class is for YOU! I know how frustrating it can be when you don't get the results you want or expect. It's difficult trying to figure things out by yourself– let's do this together!

It's been a lot of blood sweat and tears (ok so maybe there wasn't any blood), but I have finally accomplished my goal of my very first self-produced online class. Having complete control over how the information is presented to you, the student, makes me very happy. I have taught collage technique workshops in person for over ten years, it is that extensive experience that has helped me to create this comprehensive, easy to understand video tutorial.

In this course you will learn how to create painterly, rich, layered collage papers with the Gel Press Monoprinting Plate. I demonstrate one Gel Plate technique per video module, giving you detailed information in easy to comprehend one-at-a-time format. 

  • Starting With Light Colored Solid Base Prints
  • Utilizing Stencils for Masking and Ghost Printing
  • Masking Techniques with Everyday Objects
  • Removing Paint for Subtle Patterns
  • Mark Making for Custom Patterns 

Enjoy over two hours of high resolution multi camera video! There are PDF downloads for each module to help jog your memory when you are working in the studio.

Enjoy immediate access to the entire course, work through it on your own schedule
