Competition Closes on Sunday

You still have time until Sunday night 12pm to enter and win a Cotton Canvas Apron. The Lucky Number will then be selected, and the apron will be posted.
Just leave a comment on the previous post and you will stand a chance to win.

For the class at Hobby-Ex I wanted a certain colour paint for the Messenger Bags, so I mixed it myself. For the Tekkie Class in Delmas, I used the same colours. Here is my recipe: 5 parts white Dala Sunpaint and 1 part colour of your choice, except for the Navy and the Red. Their mix are about 50/50.
The brown is about 80% brown and 20% white.
Remember to cover your project with a layer of Dala gel medium and to spot wash softly with a soapy sponge.

Fatima Mangera-Minty attended my class at Hobby-Ex. This is her bag that she went home with, stunning! We did some decoupage, masking, foam stamping, rubber stamping and some paint spraying with the Dala Sun-paints.
All of these techniques can be used on the aprons.

When finished spraying the paint, wash the nozzle of the spray bottle. By doing this, your bottle's nozzle won't clog up. Treat it as you would treat a brush.

Thanks for visiting!
