Pebeo fantasy paint simply drop paint on and watch it flow when it is dry it looks and feels like enamel

 

 

 

 

I used small wooden frames wooden shapes wooden faces and wooden  letters

Drop the shapes into the paint while still wet and they will stay in place as the paint hardens

A quick and simple Christmas Tee Light Decoration, made using an Old CD, acetate, Peel Offs Stickers, candy Tray, Transparent Glass paint (Pebeo Vitrail, Pebeo Vitrea 160 Pens) and Glue. The outline of the Pee-off’s give a leaded stained glass appearance to the design.

Preparations

bullet Cut a square of Acetate to approx 3.5″ by 3.5″
bullet Gently score a line approx 0.5″ up from the bottom of one side. This will act as the securing fold to the CD
bullet Select an appropriate Peel Off Sticker as your design.
bullet Stick this in the centre of the acetate sheet, with the base of your design between 0.25 and 0.75″ above the scored line ( or ensure that the centre of your design is approx 1.25″ above the score line. This is approx the height of the Tee Light Flame)
bullet Fill in the blank areas of your Peel Off Sticker with the glass paint, or glass pen, and allow to dry
bullet Stick a candy tray over the centre hole of the CD. This will hold your Tee Light in Place. Many Tee lights come with a lose metal or plastic cup. This can be used instead of the Candy Tray.

October 23, 2011

 

bullet A quick and easy Fabric Painting Project for age 5 to Adult.
bullet Requirements:

 

bullet 1 45ml bottle Pebeo Setacolor Fabric paint
bullet 1 white Legionnaires Sun Hat, or any white Sun Hat.
bullet Salt Crystals.
bullet Large Paint brush or sponge.

 

 

  Method

 

bullet Mix a solution of water and Pebeo Setacolor Fabric paint.
bullet The more water the lighter the colour. Can be diluted to a level of one part paint two parts water.
bullet Either indoors or away from direct sunlight apply a liberal application of paint either using a brush or a sponge.
bullet Ensure that the fabric is wet.
bullet Place the fabric on a flat dry surface such as a vinyl tile.
bullet flatten the cap as much as possible, making peaks and hollows.
bullet Apply a liberal application of Salt Crystals.
bullet Allow the hat to dry in direct sunlight. This will aid the process of the salt absorbing the paint.
bullet Once dry you will have a superb Summer Sun Hat.

Hints and Tips

 

bullet Pebeo Setacolor Fabric paint is Photosensitive. 

 

bullet Spectacular effects can be achieved by shielding areas from light.
bullet Scatter items such as leaves or cut out shapes to the fabric after painting.
bullet Move items to direct sunlight, ensuring that the covered areas remain covered.
bullet Fabric sheltered from the sunlight will retain a darker colour, while certain items that shield the fabric will also absorb paint at different levels leaving a pattered effect.
bullet use more than one colour, apply liberal amount of salt in the areas where paint merges.

 

 Apply a liberal amount of watered down Pebeo Setacolor Fabric Paint. Use either a sponge or large paint brush.
Once the hat is covered in paint, and still wet, flatten it out on a flat surface.
Apply a liberal amount of Salt Crystals to the hat. Areas with no salt will remain colour true, while the salt absorbes the colour in oter areas.

Shuffle the salt crystals around to achieve different effects.
