I need a lot of practice but this will be so fun. I thought I would use these on the gelli plate but they are actually a gelli all in their self. I did use the small gelli plate to ink the small ones. Almost ruined the whole school last night by trying them with acrylic paint! +_+ Lucky I had a pan of soapy water near by so didn't. The lines are very faint and only show up with ink. The less ink the better. Like I said I need to practice.
