Polymer and Paint

Polymer and Paint

Today’s experiment:Remember the black butterfly I cast in Sculpey Soufflé polymer back in January?

Its been baked, and today I painted it with Lumiere paints. I used a dry paint technique with angled bristle brushes. I used a liner on the body. 

I had lots of paint leftover, so I brushed some gold on a red piece I had molded, cast, and baked.

The Lumiere paints have lots of shine, so I think I’ll finish these with a satin glaze.

Project of the (2) Week(s)

Project of the (2) Week(s)

Our mailbox was shabby, with NO chic. I sprayed it with bleach cleaner to kill mold and algae. I scraped it to remove peeling paint. Then I used primer and spray paint from previous projects, here and at Mama’s. It took 2 weeks, off and on, and many coats of white, but only cost $1.04! I was out of black for the numbers!

The stocking ornament was a gift from a student in 1990.
