Simple Shading using Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos (R)


Hello Creatives!!

Keri Sallee of the Guest Design Team here and today I want to share with you a simple way to add shading to your projects using just 2-3 colors of Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos (R.)

Shading can be intimidating to those new to the process, so I can drafted an easy to follow Snapguide to show you step by step how to do it to make this simple flower. 


Here is my Snapguide! 

Check out How to Do Simple Shading With Faber Castel Gelatos by Keri Sallee on Snapguide.


You can keep this technique simple or go a little bigger like this piece!




I used the same techniques with different colors and shapes on my flowers and added Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Texture Gems in Gold and Pearl to add some more fun!

The full line of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Products are GREAT to Mix N' Match!

I hope this easy technique will help you to step outside your comfort zone and try something new!
