Experiment: Adding Color to Modeling Paste

I decided to try adding a bunch of different colorants to modeling paste to see which ones work best.  The experiment itself went pretty well.  Making the video?  Yeah... not so much.  lol  I had planned to fast forward some of the scenes to make the video shorter, but my editing software wouldn't let me do it.  Then the end of it was all wonky and staticky, so I ended up cutting it and doing a new ending.  But the important thing is that you get to see what happens when adding things like spray ink and Twinkling H2Os to modeling paste.  I will warn you that the video is almost 14 minutes long, so grab some popcorn and snuggle into a comfy chair.  :)

Materials Used in the video:  stencils: Heidi Swapp and Studio Calico, Twinkling H2O : LuminArte (Hot Cinnamon), gelato: Faber Castell (Tangerine), spray ink: Lindy's Stamp Gang (Yellow Rose of Texas), india ink: Dr. Ph. Martin's (Grass Green), acrylic paint: Craft Smart (Mediterranean Blue), metallic rub: Viva Inka Gold (Violet), molding paste: Golden, cardstock: from my scrap pile

  1. Another great tutorial. Wonder if it is possible to safely melt the gelato or metallic rub before mixing? I've never used either so have no idea. I think the finished products were so cute - I especially liked the rainbow hearts and circles. Thanks for sharing.
