I love making Christmas ornaments to add to the tree. Here's one using this week's Faber-Castell Gelatos ® Color of the Week: Iced Currant:
Gelatos - Iced Currant, Green Tea
Plastic Bulb Ornament
Spray Bottle filled with Water
Heat Gun (optional)
Start by cutting off about 1/4" chunk of Iced Current Gelatos with a palette knife. Use the pallet knife to mash it down onto your craft mat.
Mix in about 2 tablespoons of Glaze.
Allow it to sit upside down to help it spread out, then put it upright, placing the mixture back inside and allowing it to spread around again. You may need to do this a few times to build up a good coverage. When finished, allow any remaining mixture to drain out and allow the bulb to dry.
Chop off about 1/4" of Green Tea Gelatos and add a few sprays of water to it as you mash it out. Keep mixing it until you have a think consistency without any lumps.
Add in your muslin and stir and flip it all around in the diluted Gelatos to dye it. Add more sprays of water if you need it. It's helpful to use a palette knife or two to do it so your hands don't turn green.
To adhere the fabric pieces onto the bulb it's helpful to use a dry adhesive on the back side of the fabric so it can be positioned onto the bulb. Use fabric glue to glue the ends together.
And when it's finished, enjoy it on your tree or give it as a gift!
