2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Wooden DIY clock for kids decorated with color pencils on: May 11, 2016 06:14:49 AM
With my 6 years old kid I've created this wooden clock using a thin plywood sheet, a cheap clock mechanism and some soft colour pencils (aquarell pencils).

It's a very quick project, the clock is very light and we made it as we wanted, really simple to learn reading the time  Grin

You can read the whole tutorial on my italian blog, with the kind help of Google Translator  Wink



3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wooden bracelet colored with pencils on: May 11, 2016 06:00:40 AM
Recently I've completed my second wooden bracelet decorated with soft colored pencils (aquarell pencils) and I'm very satisfied with it, so I'll keep it for me.  Wink

Here's my first try; I decorated it as a gift to an artist friend that use "colored pencils on brown paper" technique for her works.

I used a white candle, daubed softly on all the bracelet surface, to fix and protect the colors.

And here's my one, with the small blue apple (my blog nickname means "little blue apple"

Bye everyone from Italy  Smiley

Thank YOU to all your comments!

I experimented this technique by myself, I find it's great to create window ornaments with shaded "watercolor" effect and I love to share it with creative people  Smiley

Here's a indoor backlight photo of a snow crystal:

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Vinyl glue window decoration on: December 21, 2015 02:56:43 AM
This year I used the classic universal vinyl glue VINAVIL to create home made glass and window winter decoration for my house and as little presents for my friends.

To create this snow crystal I printed some templates from the internet (http://www.bastelideen.info/html/bastelvorlage_schneeflocke_11.html) on a A4 sheet of paper and inserted them in sheet protectors (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_pocket).

Then I used a plastic squeeze bottle (sauce or condiment dispenser) filled with vinyl glue  to cover the images with a thick layer of glue and I uniformly spreaded on the top of the fresh glue a lot of white transparent glitter.

When the decoration is dry and transparent, you can slightly wet it on the back side and press it on a smooth glass surface, like a window or a mirror.

My favourite is the golden star!

I also created some decoration without glitter and used some colored china inks to paint on the dry glue surface:

Sometimes I added I touch of glitter after the ink, and I completed the details with glitter pens, as for the "Nelli snowflake" decoration:

In this case, I finished the decoration with some layers of transparent acrylic spray paint to better fix the details on the surface.

For other examples and full explanation of my technique you can look at my italian blog here: http://vogliounamelablu.blogspot.it/2015/12/window-colors-fai-da-te-decorazioni.html

The "Nelli" drawing is taken from Sybille Tezzele Kramer's works: https://sybilletezzelekramerartblog.wordpress.com/2015/11/02/piccola-raccolta-giochi-inverno/
