Quick and Easy Gelato technique

July 2013 273

 Need a quick way to decorate a bag? Rita Barakat here with an easy & quick way to use Gelatos! Grab a stencil and some Gelatos. I grabbed Metallic Mint and Bubble Gum Gelatos I color right in the stencil- I am not trying to fill the spaces, just rubbing off some color...

Then I take an art sponge (it is more dense then a make up sponge) and rub the color into the surface before removing your stencil. When you lift your stencil you get great vibrant color. (Tip- make sure you have no clumps of Gelato before lifting the stencil- keep blending until it's gone.)
If you want  a softer more chalk like look,
draw on your craft mat or table and pick up the color with your sponge instead.
Happy crafting!
