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 :)
Hey everyone! I am still working on answering a ton of questions you’ve all left in the past 2 weeks so I’ll get to them asap, I didn’t forget about you :) If you want something answered privately or anon just ask that’s fine by me!
You made my day :) thanks!!!!
I actually haven’t crafted in so long. Now that I have some free time, I may or may not go a bit overboard on the crafting!!
Don’t be shy, come submit some crafts or tutorials! :)
