Creating Mixed Media Backgrounds with Gel Prints (Video Tutorial)

Gel Plate Tutorial

This week I have a special art treat for you -- a video tutorial!  Yay!  I have been wanting to do a full-on tutorial for a while, and last week finally found some time to share how to make mixed media backgrounds for your art pieces using a gel printing plate.  The first video is the full tutorial, which is about fifteen minutes long, and the second is a quick bonus video without talking.  If you aren't quite sure what I'm talking about, you can learn more about what a gel plate is here, and how to use it here.  Enjoy! 

Would you like to see more video art tutorials?  If so, what topics most intrigue you?
