Dual Colored Pastel Ribbon
by Amy Rysavy
Transform plain white ribbon with pastels.
- White grosgrain ribbon
- Sponge daubers
- Acrylic sealer [buy it]
Cut desired length of ribbon. 18" is manageable, as this can get messy.
Use firm pressure to apply pastel with a sponge dauber.
Go back and forth until you achieve the color you want.
Flip the ribbon over and apply a different color of pastel with another sponge dauber.
Once both sides of the ribbon are covered evenly, brush off any excess pastel powder with a large brush or a paper towel.
Place the ribbon on scrap paper or cardboard and spray lightly with acrylic sealer.
Use acrylic sealer in a well-ventilated area or outside as the fumes from the sealer are very strong.
Once the ribbon is dry (a few seconds should be enough), flip the ribbon over and spray again.
