Hi lovely crafty friends, today I have a fun and easy way to add a stunning textured pop of color to your papercraft projects.
We are going to do a simple string painting technique that will give you gorgeous results. With a few cool hacks, you can take your designs to the next level.
All techniques and ideas are shown in the video tutorial. Make sure to watch it to get all the best tips and tricks.
(I added the used supplies so you don’t have to hunt for them, among them are affiliate links that may be used at no cost to you.)
To get started, gather your supplies. You’ll need Gelatos crayons in your desired colors, a piece of string or twine, white cardstock or a journal, and a water spraybottle.
Faber-Castell Gelatos Crayons [Scrapbook.com] [dickblick.com] [Amazon.com] are water soluble crayons. They look like a chapstick and the firm outside makes that they don’t break, are easy to work with and less messy than other crayons.
They have good pigment and come in a variety of options as iridescent and metallic for some gorgeous added shimmer and sparkle. That’s why they are my favorite Crayons.
For the String, Thread or Twine, you can use what you have on hand. Regular sewing thread is a great option, not the super fine kind but a slightly thicker one.
Another great option is cotton twine or binding twine, which will give a bit more textured results.
To do this technique in a less mess way you have to look no further than Gelatos crayons! These versatile art supplies can be used for a variety of techniques, including String Painting or Pulling also known as Thread Painting or Pulling.
The String Painting technique is often done with acrylic paint on big canvasses, but with Gelatos it can be easily used for your paper crafting projects too.
And with a few hacks you can step it up a nudge by making a fun string flower bouquet. You can learn all it about it in the video.
