This is the next to the last update I am going to do on my homemade Gelli Plate. I think it has proven itself worthy. If you don't mind re melting it every two or three sessions, it is a very affordable choice. I must admit I have really enjoyed playing with it, but I am expecting a Gelli Arts Gelli Plate from Amazon today. I am excited. I will do a side by side comparison soon.
Yesterday I cut my homemade plate into an 8 x 10 and a 5 x 3 and a 3" round. I played with all of them today and it was fun. The little ones do give you additional abilities, but really I felt like they were more distracting than helpful.
