Ombré Cards with Gelatos
Gesso and Gelato Stamping - With a Video

Doodling with Gelatos®

Project 2 5-25-13
Hello, welcome back! Meihsia here sharing with you a project that I've always enjoyed doing with -- doodling. Here are some quick steps showing how I made this cute coaster that kids will also love to use or create with doodling and some awesome Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products.
 
First, I cut the linen canvas paper into a 4" circle, drew an elephant using a pencil. Colored the image and background with Gelatos®.

Covered the image and background with a thin layer of Gesso to make the colors softer.
 
Stamped randomly on the background with the text stamp.

Drew some lines to make the image more interesting.
 
The final step is covering the front and back of the coaster with Glaze. I did it twice to make sure the coaster is totally sealed and waterproof.

Made another fun and cute coaster here using the same technique and products.
 
Hope you get a chance to try some doodling and these great products. 
 
Have fun!  ^_^
