Gel Press plates are not “gelatin”, they're way better! You have all the benefits of ‘gelatin’ printing with no downsides! Gel Press is super durable and reusable because, unlike ‘homemade’ gel, you can store your Gel Press plate at room temperature. It’s so easy to clean, it’s printmaking without the mess! Press your paper on the gel plate, lift the print and Voila! Creating a masterpiece is easy. The ultra-sensitive surface requires just a small amount of paint and then "grabs" the tiniest details; such as the veins of a leaf or the delicate wisps of feathers and "holds" them in the gel.
