  • Going dotty--thanks a lot, Kim!

    Needed a bed for my "furniture suite" and figured it was a good time to try out those fabric paints that I bought with a 50% off coupon at Michael's. I really meant to use them for a decorated cake box, but I haven't had a chance to get the thick maple I needed.

    So, here it is--the dotty decorated bed box!

            Glad you all like it--it's certainly different from my usual stuff.

            Kim's advice about using the paint was very helpful. The only thing I did differently was to use tiny parchment cake decorating bags to get a finer dot than the container's tip allowed. Those little bags are made from parchment triangles and can be used without metal tips--you just cut a tiny bit of the point off.

            Kim said to finish things off with a coat of lacquer after everything's dried up well, so I'll do that in a day or so. I gave it a coat of lacquer before I began, and that didn't seem to keep the paint from adhering well.

            And Gloria, how about dressing up some of your bows with dotted borders or just polka dot ribbons? I used to pipe icing dots and borders on gumpaste loops and tails. If I get a chance, I'll give it a try, unless you beat me to it!

                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
