Ten Minute Dominos By Carol Fox

We all lead very busy lives and sometimes we just don't get the time we would like to sit down and enjoy our hobbies, with this in mind I have a very short and sharp project for you today, literally a quick little ten minute make for when you can grab a little bit of crafty time.
  • Using a piece of Cut-N-Dry Foam, sponge PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint in Snowflake over the front and sides of your domino, heat dry. Sponging on the paint gives a slightly textured finish to it.
  • Use Black Archival Ink stamp your image, either leave to dry or heat set.
  • Unscrew the top of your chosen colours of Dylusions Ink Spray and drop a tiny spot onto your craft mat, pick up the colour with a water brush and colour in your image. Heat dry between each colour to avoid the colours running into each other.
  • Finish with a quick coat of Freso Finish Satin Sealer, do not brush to hard as you will make the colours bleed, just a quick flick over is all that is needed to protect your domino, or use a spray varnish.
  • Add a magnet to the back if you want to use it as a fridge magnet, or just stick it to a surface with a piece of blue tack if you don't have a magnet.
I had not used paint and Dylusions inks on dominos before doing this, but I wanted to keep the colours bright - I was quite please with the result.

I used:
Prima Cling stamps: Songbird
A domino from a games set
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paint and Satin Sealer
Dylusions Ink Sprays
Water brush
Black Archival In

Thank you for your visit today, Carol x
