HOW TO USE GEL-A-PEEL?
First we had a choice of what we would like to make. We looked at the templates and Grace chose the floral choker necklace. She wanted to make her choker necklace multi-colored. We have a choice of five Gel-a-Peel coloured pens to choose from so she chose purple, orange and pink for her flowers and pearly white for the choker.
There are different tips to choose which simply screw on to you Gel-a-Peel tube to give you different effects on your designs on your template you chose. The template will suggest which pen for you to use by displaying a number next to each section. If you refer back to the instructions sheet you will see you will have a choice of Round Tip, Star Tip, Rake Tip, Spike Effect and Rainbow Effect styles.
Press the tube tip against the clear drawing sheet and squeeze as you slowly follow the pattern, Grace loved doing this to create her choker necklace. When you have finished using your colour, remove the tip. Make sure you replace the protective plug back on, this prevents your Gel-a-Peel drying out! For your Gel-a-Peel design to work you must make sure all the gel lines, spikes, different colors and other designs are touching.
WHAT CAN I MAKE?
There are many different designs you can choose from using the templates, such as bracelets, earrings, charms that you can add onto bracelets or necklaces or create something without a template and design yourself!
You can use the gel trays supplied to create your charms for your bracelet, necklace or earrings.
If you are wanting to add more than one colour in your gel tray – wait 5-10 minutes before adding the additional colours to your design to allow the first colour to dry slightly. There are so many choices, you will have hours of fun making different types of jewellery.
On your template it will tell you on each sheet how long your design will take to dry. After waiting the time stated, use the included cleaning tool to peel it from the clear drawing sheet and you have your stunning jewellery ready to wear.
If you happen to break a piece you have made, to repair it all you need to do is reapply gel over the broken section and wait for it to dry.
Grace knows that Jake’s favourite colour is orange so she used the Gel Tray to make an orange chain-like bracelet for him ready for him as a surprise coming home from school! He was thrilled as he had asked for a bracelet but always seems to shy as he thinks they are girly, but nope, this one he is really happy with and can’t wait to show his teacher at school tomorrow.
Jake also joined in after playing outside, he came in and made Grace a bracelet using the pink Gel-a-Peel pen and from the Gel Tray he had made earlier, he gelled on a mustache gem and left it to dry, and back out he went to play!
Here is Grace wearing her floral choker necklace and the bracelet Jake made! She really loves these bright summery colours!
Gel-a-Peel can be used to decorate pretty much anything such as bags & accessories, great for children to create and make with so much left in the tube after finishing.
We have had great fun making these as always, such great family time and something to fill a weekend or rainy afternoon.
