Anyone? I’ve never bought one online, but you might possibly be able to locate one at your local craft store with other wooden items!
DO IT :)
I would probably use a thin puffy paint, because regular paints require a lot of prep before you can paint on plastic. I would just be careful with it and hand wash! I’ve never done it this way, but here is a little how-to on painting plastic with a regular paint. However, if you hand wash gently i’m not sure how necessary all of the steps are!
hi! about the DG lilly print letters, they were big unfinished wood letters i picked up at michaels for about $3 or so each. they have a wide variety of fonts and shapes and such, so you can pretty much find something for everyone!
Yes you can. You can either submit it through your tumblr page so it won’t show an email, or you can be completely anonymous and submit it normally but in the post ask me to post it anonymously, and I will just copy whatever you submitted into a new post :)
edit: also, just so everyone knows, your email is not made public at all, just whatever you write as your name.
Some letters I made for the future little! For reference, each letter is about the size of a piece of paper. Go big or go home!
A tip for everyone who wants to paint a pattern or image rather than modgepodge it: print out your image as big as possible on a piece of paper. Then turn your image over and rub the side of a pencil point all over the back. Make sure it is completely covered and as dark as possible without using the point (doesn’t work as well, and has the potential to rip the paper). Then, flip the paper over again so the image is right side up and carefully tape it using painter’s tape (blue tape) to or over the place you want to transfer it to. Carefully trace over your design with a very sharp pencil (mechanical ones work great). Make sure to trace the whole design before you move the paper (it takes a bit to resist checking on it every few lines, but if you move the paper even slightly it makes your job that much harder later to correct what you mistraced). When you’re done, life the paper up, and the graphite on the back should have transferred to your piece in the lines you traced. Works really well, and doesn’t show through the paint later!
Happy crafting everyone!
I think the most secure way would be to use a small dot of hot glue. I love my hot glue gun, honestly. Anything that has a very strong hold when it dries will do the trick though :)
