By the Jesmonite Team.
Hear the sleigh bells ringing and some unique Christmas cheer coming to your door! If you’re looking for a Christmas craft project to do with the children or all the family, then this could be the perfect one. Or if you’re bored with your decades-old Christmas decorations and the same ones available to buy in each shop, then this could be the answer.
You may be worried about the potential delay in delivering Christmas presents this year and thinking of creating lovingly homemade gifts for your family and friends. Whatever the reason, if you’ve seen wonderful creations by people using Jesmonite online and always wondered just how easy it is to use and what all the fuss is about, now is the time to indulge in that curiosity.
We’ve created a special Christmas starter kit which gives you everything you need to make your own Christmas decorations. Jesmonite is non-toxic and water based so all the family can join in – and it’s easy to use without the need for any specialist equipment so you can do it at the kitchen table.
What it includes:
● AC100 liquid
● 3 pigments (red, yellow, and blue)
● Stirring sticks
● Two Christmas moulds – a Christmas tree and a star
What you can make:
Our Christmas starter kit is the perfect way to wow visitors this festive season as they see your unique handcrafted Christmas décor. We’ve all looked at our homes in a different way recently and many people have found ways to add a little colour, personality, and sparkle to the everyday. Now, you can do it especially for the magical time of year. The Christmas tree or star moulds can be used to make gorgeous Christmas tree decorations or to simply decorate your home this wonderful season!
How good is a starter kit:
Jesmonite starter kits have been on sale since August 2019. The aim of it has been to encourage people to try a new creative product – whether for a beginner or those keen to explore Jesmonite further. When lockdown hit in March 2020, starter kits were in high demand. Everyone wanted to try this simple, environmentally friendly, and impressive product – they had time, didn’t have access to studio space and wanted to try something new. During lockdown, sales increased more than tenfold. We now sell on average 900 starter kits a month – that’s double what it was in December 2020, even after a surge from lockdown. The feedback we’ve had has been great – and the figures speak for themselves.
So, try your hand at something new, create a unique Christmas product or gift and spread some Christmas cheer this year! You can stick to the simplest instructions or mix it up a little and create a pattern on your product, do it in Terrazzo style, marbling design or add glitter, or… anything you think of!
