Tweet Chirp Coaster by Carol Fox




I have made a coaster this week using the Gelli plate to make my background. 


Gave my square 3 thin coats of Gesso, thin coats are better than one thick coat as you don’t get any lines in the gesso and it gives a smoother surface for your paint.

I used colours on my Gelli plate, mixing them with a roller directly on the plate. I pressed my square onto the Gelli in the same way as you would a sheet of paper.

I laid a stencil onto the Gelli and brayered blue paint over it, I removed my stencil and then pressed the square into the Gelli surface, I repeated this with white paint and the bird stencil.

I stamped my image and quote directly onto the tile using black Archival ink.

I finished with some stamping in black Archival ink to fill in any gaps, and I edged it with black acrylic paint.


I used
