Tip Tuesday | Page Prep | Gesso vs Matte Gel Medium

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing some information about page prep in your Bible journaling. You’ll want to be sure to watch the video at the end of this post because it contains a lot more information and details than what I can include in a blog post.

1

I share a few different products that you can use and what their difference are. The testing in my Bible shows exactly why I don’t like to watercolor on a page that’s been prepped with a medium. The watercolor is more difficult to control and creates puddles of colors (which can be a look you want but it’s hard to work with).

But, this shows that the pro of page prepping is that there is absolutely no bleed through. You could even color on your pages with Sharpie markers and nothing will come through. It just depends on the products you are using, the look that you want, and how much you dislike bleed through.

Be sure to check out the video for more details and examples of ways to use these products.
