Se7en Discover Acrylics…

December 24th, 2010 · 5 Comments

We haven’t been doing absolutely nothing around here and today we leapt into Christmas gear. Lots of little projects got under way and we couldn’t have done any of it without our tubes of Acrylic paints… Where have I been and why haven’t we needed these paints until now. I have a feeling that these are going to be a regular item on our list of essential craft tools from now on!!!


The joy of acrylics is that you can paint them on almost anything…

    I know you want to know how to do that last one so here goes: Use a cookie cutter to cut some shapes from some slices of bread and leave them to dry overnight. They will be really stiff. We sprayed them with white paint to make an easy surface to paint. Then we painted them and they were ready to hang on the tree.


That’s acrylics paint in a nutshell and I am sure you will lots more of them on our blog in the future!!!
