I have a bunch of interfacing that I had inherited or bought(?). A lot of it does not have adhesive on it. I was inspired by Gelli Arts video on their website, here, to gelli print on some of it.

I used the same process I would for gelli printing on paper or fabric. I put paint on the plate and rolled it out with a brayer. I laid down some stencils, then my interfacing, and pull a print. If there is still paint on the plate, I try to pull a ghost print. And so on, and so on. Until my dining table is covered. Then I often add another layer to most of them. I go into more detail about gelli printing in my post here.
I found printing on interfacing very similar to paper. If using a thin interfacing, I recommend putting a piece of deli paper on top as the paint does seep through the interfacing. Typically I couldn't get a decent print on the deli paper as well, there was not enough seeping paint for that. I had a thin and a thick interfacing and liked the thin one better, as the prints can be layered over other prints, since they are translucent.
Here are my interfacing prints.
I also did some prints on fabric.
And some on deli paper
I really liked using the interfacing for gelli printing and would definitely use it again. I have a project for these already, so I hope to get working on using these soon.
Update 9/8/14: See my post here using a gelli print on interfacing and one of these deli paper prints to make a piece of artwork.
