Whoo-Hoo!! The Spring into Summer Trends Mini is here! Let’s explore inspiration and fun techniques. We are breaking down this fun coloring technique for you. It’s one of Richard’s “RG” favorites.
Explore the new Trends Mini. You’ll see featured projects with the RG Loves This sticker (shown above). Three projects have captions noting “check out the blog … for online bonus content.” This weekend we are sharing each of those projects with steps to show off the cool technique. Feel free to share with friends and customers, or print it off to save it. This particular project is featured on page 27 of the catalog.

Step 1: Stamp the Artful Fins image on a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock. Grab the Sour Lemon Splash. Open up the nozzle and use the tube to drip a small amount of the Splash onto a Clear Block. Take the fish and smoosh both sides into the color. Allow it to dry.
Step 2: Clean off the Clear Block, or grab a new one. Add Cool Pool Splash to the Clear Block and lightly dip the Artful Fin image into it. Allow to dry. Repeat this step with Turbo Teal Splash, but add a bit of water to dilute the deep color.
Step 3: Add Citrus Cooler to a new Clear Block, or clean off your previous one. Dip your image into the color.
Step 4: Add Journey Glaze to your Artful Fin and Journey Sparkle Cuts to make it shimmer. Then finish assembling your project.
