So I thought it might be pretty neat to start posting something different then crocheting things up here every now and then, thus comes ANFSCD or “And Now for Something Completely Different” Episode 1!
So first I got the image of what we wanted painted on here, then I printed it out and started to cut out the parts we wanted to stencil out and paint on (with acrylic paints, not crayon)
Key note: cut the stencil out of painters tape and then paint it on! I had to do it twice because I’m dumb. Also, when your painting your design on, dab the paint on gently, or it will slide under the tape and make the edges less percise and more fuzzy.
After you have your design painted on, let it dry and then put tape over the design itself (I forgot to take photos, sorry :/). Also put little tabs up so the “rain” runs over the umbrella. This tutorial shows how to do this all wayyy better haha.
So, like I said earlier, I couldn’t get the glue gun working, so we did it the “old fashion” way. We just took a lighter and melted the crayons manually!
