I am so honored to be able to be on the Core Design Team 2017-2018. My name is Lindsay and I blog at seeLINDSAY. I love to show how easy things are to accomplish and that you don't need a lot of tools to get a great craft or recipe. Today I am going to show you how to use the Faber-Castell® Gelatos® with their coordinating stencils. Something so easy, you'll wonder why you didn't try it before.
- Faber Castell Gelatos
- Faber Castell Stencils
- Scrap pieces of wood painted in your color of choice
- Faber Castell Whipped Spackle
- Palette Knife
Begin by unwrapping your stencil and choosing your design. I chose the Honeycomb stencil and I used washi tape to help adhere it to the surface before I began mixing my Gelatos. Take your whipped spackle and use a marble size amount and now just spread your Gelatos next to the spackle on your palette. The warmer your Gelatos, the easier it will spread. I mixed 3 different colors with 3 different bits of spackle.
Once your color and your spackle are mixed, used your palette knife and spread it over the stencil onto your wood. When you're adhering your stencil, be sure to place it as secure as it can be so that no spackle will go under your image. Lift up your stencil and set aside to dry.
Seriously, that's it. It's so simple and gives your project such great dimension. I'm excited to put these chevron arrows into my boy's room. They've been sitting in the garage for 2 years cause I wanted to do something more than just arrows. Now with my Gelatos and stencils they finally have the look I was going for.
I hope you'll find inspiration in this project.
