We have a kite team, which I may have mentioned once or twice here Wink. Our team uniform is black, as are our kites, but each member of the team has a specific colour which is used to help distinguish the kites in the sky. Well, this year I found some watches that actually come in the colours of every member of the team Smiley a harder job than you might think!

We have a standard size stencil (the smallest my cutter can manage to do and keep tidily) of our logo, that we use to sign whatever random piece of kit that gets passed round at festivals (posters, kites, hats, shirts, mugs, tablecloths, winders e.t.c.). We each keep one in our wallets, and for me, it lurks there all year, not just in festival season. I dragged it out of my purse to use to highlight each gift this year.



I used a morsel of foam to apply the acrylic paint I used. On the acetate stencil, I used spray glue on the reverse in order to make sure I had a good seal on the concave curved surface of the watch strap, and I quickly learned that I needed to reapply the glue for each watch. The acrylic will wear off the silicone of the snap on straps eventually, but it shouldn't be a problem. Yes, that's the stencil in the centre.

From pink, going clockwise: Irene, Val, Pete, Mick, Keith, Paul, me & Doug.

This is wonderful! What a fun way to show your team spirit and identify your kite! I bet they add a fun splash of color to your uniforms too Smiley.

Very interesting project. And I agree...great for the team spirit. You got posted on the 'lost in the shuffle' thread, so you might get more replys soon. I somehow missed this project, myself. Our member/friend LimeRiot added you there. And how great that you were able to find matching watches for the whole team.

They had an outing shortly after Christmas. I love the snap on nature of the watches, they go great over the top of the 5 layers of clothing I was wearing that day Smiley.

You could always come in as our guest (who has a colour already: Black!), we have a full set of flying (but not wearing) kit ready for a guest. Wink

Too bad that we most probably don't live that near to eachother! I think a sea between us?!!

It still IS a great project and if I could, I would hit this rocks again for having a guest set!! That is really thoughtful  Cheesy
