Altered Upcycling is an educational crafting company that promotes living a creative life using mixed media, upcycling and green crafting tips, tricks and tutorials. The company has developed several books (all available on Amazon under Mahe Zehra Husain) that teach the reader how to live creatively, upcycle and make the most of their time and art supplies. The goal is to reduce as much wastage of materials for a greener crafting method.
Recently Altered Upcycling has published a guide to gelli printing. The book starts from the very beginning and teaches readers how to make their own gelli plate. The book then goes through all the materials that are needed to do printmaking. Here is where Altered Upcycling excels. The book shows how easy it is to turn ‘trash’ items into printmaking treasures. From bottle caps to old coasters, the tool making section is full of how to use green items in your printmaking runs. After making your tools and plate you’re ready for some gelli printing action. The book showcases several techniques with the help of text, pictures and video – as well as an easily printed reference guide.
A Gelli Printing Adventure features several different projects to facilitate both the beginner and experienced artist. Even if you have never tried gelli printing before, this book will walk you through the entire process in a step by step manner with lots of pictures and examples.
