Hi everyone, Mou here with Halloween home decor tutorial for you.
Do you ever shop in kid craft aisles? I do... some for my kids, especially my son who loves to paint things, but also for me. Don't always have a plan, but I pick up random things here and there. Such was the case of the Halloween chandelier.
After sitting in a bin in my studio for at least a couple of years, it finally saw light of day. I found this chandelier at JoAnn. I altered it with the following supplies:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accent: Chalkboard Paint
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accent: Gesso
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accent: Gel Medium
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accent: Glass Bead Glitter Gel
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos Tool Set
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® colors: Gold Champagne, Iced Chai, Tangerine, Mango, Red Cherry, Blueberry, Cotton Candy, Metallic Mint
Others: punchinella, stencil, string
Start by adding a coat of Gesso to the chandelier pieces. Be sure to coat both the front and the back as you'll see all the sides when it's assembled and displayed.
Next, coat parts of the chandelier with chalkboard paint leaving out the candles and flames.
It should look something like this.
Color the candles with Gold Champagne and Iced Chai Gelatos® colors and blend with Gel Medium.
Color the flames with Mango, Tangerine and Red Cherry Gelatos® colors and blend with Gel Medium.
Add some dimension to the chandelier structure by rubbing on Blueberry, Cotton Candy, Gold Champagne and Metallic Mint Gelatos® colors. Blend the colors with your fingers.
Lay a stencil over the chalkboard painted part of a chandelier piece and apply Glass Bead Glitter Gel with palette knife. Let dry thoroughly. Repeat on every surface of each chandelier piece.
When dry, lay a punchinella over some parts and color lightly with Iced Chai Gelatos® color.
Assemble the pieces together and tie with string to display in a chosen spot.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and now, it's time to announce the winners of October 2014 Take the Challenge with Mou.

Hello everyone, it's Christina (seena) Young! I'm so excited to be here today sharing my first post as a Guest Designer for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®! Inspired by Halloween, I'm sharing a mixed media collage project featuring Chalk Board Paint and Gelatos®. I've created the Bride of Frankenstein, mwahahaaa (evil laugh)! The finished project is a 9x12 piece of art you can make a part of your Halloween decor. Here are a few photos:
Chalk Board Paint as the hair - so much fun to paint!
This is my last work as a member of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Guest Design Team.
Today, I'd like to share the way of making the moon and the night sky.
We recently celebrated our Independence Day here in the USA. I love to see everyone dressed in their red, white & blue to show their patriotism. My Sister In-law shared this photo of her and her beautiful daughter. Since my niece is all dolled up like a pageant queen, I wanted my layout to resemble a parade float. The colors needed to be rich and vibrant, but feminine and soft, so I turned to my stash of Gelatos®. Their creamy texture and rich pigments were just what I needed to make this layout pop!
When I use Gelatos® I'm often asked these two questions:
Hi, folks! Margie Higuchi here with a 4th of July themed project of coloring these stinkin' cute mini glass jars! We have a new Goodwill Store open in our shopping mall so when I checked it out...well, who could resist?! LOL!!
Hi there Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® fans! Lisa back with you today sharing another fun (and a VALENTINE!) project. Well, I think so anyway. ;) I have lots of pictures to share, but don't let that scare you off, okay? GREAT!! Here we go...
I've had this chicken wire picture frame for about six months. I had so many ideas for it when I ordered it but I've barely touched it except for moving it from one side of my craft room to the other. Until now! I've decided to prepare for Valentine's Day by adding little love notes to it from now until February. Then it will be all ready to celebrate the month! YAY! Here's how I made my first love note for the display.
Happy New Year~! How about a shimmery and metallic New Year's card for the occasion! I used Design Memory Craft® Metallic Gold Gelatos® to do a faux letterpress technique on Spellbinders® 3D M-Bossabilities™ E3D-006 Framed Labels Eighteen Folder. Stamped a New Year's sentiment using JustRite® Papercraft Grand Christmas Sentiment Cling Stamps with Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Pen - Black.
She is one of four weather girls collection I have created.
Here are some pictures in progress...
