Boo! Halloween Door Hanger
I've recently been experimenting, creating beautiful painted projects using the pour paint technique like my wedding fans. This plaque is more scary than beautiful but I continue to be excited by the effects you can achieve with acrylic craft paints and Testors Marbling Medium. If you're into Halloween, this simple project will make your day. Just mix acrylic paint with the medium and pour it on this cute die-cut wooden plaque. Both the medium and the plaque are available at Michaels. I chose Orange, Black, White and Green for my plaque. Pick your favorite color for Halloween and have fun! By the way, the green paint casts a slight glow in a very dark space.
Slip into your disposable gloves for this project!
step 3 - Stir the paints gently with a craft stick.
step 9 - Slowly tilt the plaque, allowing the paint colors to marble. Expect that paint will drip off the sides. Don’t rush this tilting process. The patterns will continue to change and blend. If paint doesn’t reach some edges, that’s okay. It will only add to the creepy, irregular look. Tilt the plaque in different directions until you are happy with the effect.
step 11 - Allow the plaque to dry for several hours. It needs to be level as it dries, otherwise the paint marbling may shift. Set the painted item on a clean sturdy container.
