What's Oogoo? Only the most fun DIY gooey semi-science project since green slime. Even better, it's useful for patching, connecting and covering just about anything. In the tutorial, I show folks how to use chalk pastels to add colors and even paint with Oogoo.
The basic idea is simple, something I learned in art school years ago. But I had never seen it used with Oogoo before,
Simply scrape off some fine powder from the edge of a stick of chalk pastel, then mix the powder to create custom colors. You can sprinkle or brush the powder onto wet acrylic paint or even polyclay.
The cool thing about Oogoo is that the pigments get embedded into the material. And if you do it correctly, they are permanent and durable.
|Making colored Oogoo is simple. Just mix some cornstarch with 100% pure silicone caulking and some powdered pigments fro0m chalk pastels.|
|Use a stencil or embossing form and brush some pigment onto the surface, then work it in.|
|You can mix the pigments before or after you add them to the silicone and cornstarch|
|You can make colors that almost perfectly match the premade versions.|
Now you can wrap tools or handlebars with durable but colorful silicone. Or make cute characters - or jewelry - or home décor. It's just silicone rubber and pigment - you can shape it into anything you want to and have fun doing it.
The tutorial has all the detailed information you need to start making your own.
