Ranger in Somerset Studio Jul/Aug 2012

June 26th, 2012

If you haven’t checked out the July/August 2012 issue of Somerset Studio just yet, you might want to pick it up.  Inside, you will find an eight-page feature on the Liquid Pearls and Stickles Designer’s Challenge entries displayed in the Ranger booth at the CHA Winter 2012 show!

Each designer was given an identical paper mache dressform, and was asked to use Liquid Pearls and Stickles to decorate it.  Beyond that, the possibilities were limitless!  You’ll definitely want to read this issue of Somerset Studio to see what eight of our designers came up with, to read about their creative processes, and to come away with some inspiration for using Stickles and Liquid Pearls in art projects of your own!
