Project Instructions

Color canvas with Gelatos Colors going from darkest color to lightest color. Scribble coloring is okay. Be sure to also color the edges of the canvas.

Using a paintbrush and water, paint canvas to blend. Once dry, color again with Gelatos Colors, working in small sections and blending with fingertips as you go.

Color directly onto wooden letters with Gelatos Colors starting with the darkest colors first, then moving to the lighter colors. Blend with fingertips.

Color die cut embellishments with color pencils. Start with the lightest color and add darker shades. Begin with a light pressure and move to a heavier pressure to blend.

Wrap twine around canvas and add embellishments using Glue Dots®.


Use a baby wipe to blend Gelatos Colors instead of your finger. It is less messy and the moisture from the wipe helps to move the color more easily.
