This beginner’s kit includes a Pitt Artist Pen®, 12 colors of Soft Pastels, 5 sheets of paper, 12 die cut tags, 2 sheets of gold foil transfers with transfer stick, sanding board for breaking up the pastels, glitter and a design guide.
To create the above project, I used the following supplies:
- Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Marbling Art for Beginners Kit
- Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft PITT Artist Pens® Lettering Set: Modern Lettering
- Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium
- Other: watercolor paper, trimmer, tray for water, water, paint brush, scissors, heat tool (optional)
Let me show you how I created the project.
Trim papers to desired size. I used watercolor paper (140 lb., cold press) and trimmed it to 4.5 x 6 inches.
Fill a tray with water. Pick 2 or 3 colors of soft pastels from the Marbling Kit. Shave a pastel above the water tray using the sanding board, also from the kit. Repeat with another color. Swipe a water color paper face across the water surface of the tray. Lay the paper, face up to dry.
Repeat with another set of colors, preferably complementary to the first set. You could change the water between swipes or allow the second paper to pick up some leftover colors from the first round.
Choose a design from the foil transfers included in the kit. Cut around it with scissors.
Transfer the image by rubbing with the given stick to one of the marbled paper which should be dry by now. You can speed up the process with a heat tool.
Because I’m using a heavier paper, it didn’t curl too much from the moisture. But if you are using thinner papers, follow the directions provided in the kit design guide to dry such papers flat.
On the other marbled paper, sketch a flower stem with leaves using a PITT Artist pen Black, SB tip from the Modern Lettering Set. You could also use the XS tip PITT pen from the kit itself for this step.
Cut the flower out with scissors.
Attach the cut flower step from above to the project using Gel Medium.
Make some marks around the attached stem as shown to finish.
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and have fun creating with this Marbling Art for Beginners Kit!
