It’s no secret that I love rainbows. And you know how much I adore my gel plate. Functional art has always been close to my heart, so I figured I’d use my gel plate to create rainbow votives! It’s fun to bring my crazy ideas to fruition and especially cool when the process isn’t too involved.
I have been lighting candles in these every day and it’s really given the ambience in our living room a huge lift. I can also see these being used in our backyard in the summer. Have you ever tried making something like this with your gel plate? It works with frosted jars as well! And if you seal the paints with two coats of spray varnish, the colors will stay just as vibrant as the day you pulled the prints.
Many moons ago, I had done a more involved votive-painting project with alcohol inks. They used to be my best-selling home-decor item at craft fairs.
I hope this inspires you to make your own unique home decor project in summer. Let me know in the comments which look you prefer.
