This is the latest product from the creators of gel-a-peel. Gel-a-peel is the craft gel/glue product which can be used for multiple crafts including jewellery.
Inside the box is 3 tubes of sparkly gel-a-peel, jewellery elastic string, jewellery accessories and the design station itself.
Gel-a-peel is recommended for children ages 8 and over. It can be used by younger children with supervision. I do let Izebella have a go with the gels sometimes and she was happy to try out the new product with Jordanna.
This can be used with the templates just like previous gel-a-peel products or on the design station rods.
One rod gets placed on the station and gel gets applied to the rod to make little beads (as above). It is better to make the beads as close together as possible so that it’s easier to remove them when dry. The rods turn round making it a little easier and a little less messier to apply the gel.
The designs shown on the outside of the box look really good but unfortunately ours didn’t quite turn out as good as those. This is one of my girls creations .
It is not as easy as it sounds as the beads just did not turn out the right shape or size plus some of them came apart when we removed them from the rods.
I think Jordanna preferred decorating her phone instead.
It costs £24.99 to buy the gel-a-peel design studio. I don’t think it is something I would really go out and purchase again as my girls found it quite difficult, Jordanna being 9 and Izebella being just 4. Even I could not make the rod beads much better when I had a go.
However if you are slightly more artistic or have kids who are then they may get more out of it than we did.
