Create, color & mix!

Home of the original Gelatos, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft has expanded their media mix to include a variety of new color experiences, textural accents, kits, inks and tools that are sure to inspire you to try new techniques. These products are premium quality, combine beautifully and are user friendly, regardless of skill level. Combine one of the many color options with one of the varied textured mediums and apply the products using tools designed to create a unique project every time. It really is as simple as 1, 2, 3! I was able to combine several products to create a simple, layered work of art that looks much more complex than it actually is, all while picking up some new techniques and product knowledge along the way.

Make Your Own DIY Quote Art

Step 1: Apply gesso to a piece of mixed media paper or board. Speed up drying time with a heat tool.

Step 2: Once dry, scribble randomly at the top and bottom of your surface using a variety of Gelatos.

Step 3: Using water and a paint brush, blend Gelatos.

Step 4: Position desired quote stencil in place and use a pencil to lightly trace the letters.

Step 5: Fill in the letters using PITT Artist Pens. Try coloring them in, adding a texture or trace over script words to practice your hand lettering.

Step 6: Using the black, fine point PITT Artist Pen, outline and accent your design.

Step 7: Apply a bit of Gelato to your craft mat or an acrylic block and use a brush and water to apply it to your surface.

Step 8: Choose a patterned stencil, position as desired and apply Texture Luxe Metallic Paste using a small palette knife or your finger.

Step 9: Once dry, add more line details where desired and hang!
